... while we wandered to Trevi Fountain. Hoards of people. We did the tourist thing and threw coins in, to wish for another return journey, so they say! I bartered a guy down by 10€ and bought a print! only if I gave him a kiss!! The opera was marvellous and pasta was provided by the theatre at interval. There was a gelato cart there too.

Part of the reason the town is well preserved is because nobody much cared about it after it ...
... times and so far all the pizza places in Florence check out. It would be remiss of me not to mention that on a hot summers day, there's nothing like a Peroni or Birra Moretti to help the pizza go down.
I think I may have already mentioned gelato - I won't list all the flavours we tried because I like to keep below a certain word limit but one that deserves a mention is Grisbi. Grisbis are chocolate biscuits and delicious ones at that - they're a lightly ...
