|Tired after the tour|
Onwards, we pushed past the many street stalls displaying handbags, art and much souvenir tat towards the Pantheon. It's huge columns were lit up dramatically and we peeked though the keyhole of it's giant door, knowing we would come back another day to look inside. As we headed back towards the Piazza Navona for our aperitivi (pre-dinner drink) we had to restrain Dad from the ice creams and promise him one after dinner. There is literally a Gelatari in every street!
|Trevi Fountain at night|
We had already sussed out a restaurant that promised Mum a delicious artichoke meal with a great bunch of artichokes displayed out front and Dad the "chicken alla romana" he so fancied for a good price. Perhaps we should have taken the omen of a dodgy restaurant when they gave the four of us a table, in front of another couple and the unusual drain smell as we sat down. Dad was slightly put out when they told him they didn't have the chicken on the menu but things went from bad to worse as they informed him that they didn't have his spaghetti bolognese as they were serving the rest of us our meal. The icing on the cake was when they served Mum her main course of over micro-waved, chewed up and blackened artichoke on a bed of nothing. We will not be recommending this restaurant on Tripadvisor any time soon!!!!!!!
|Oh, I do like a gelati!|
