Have you ever been to Rome? This morning I received a text from a friend who is on a holiday there right now saying that she already ate her weight in pasta and rich chocolate gelato despite walking non-stop for the past 3 days. She even has a blister to prove it :) That little note not only made me crave a good portion of Spaghetti Aglio e Oglio but also got me thinking about this mesmerizing place. Oh just imagine taking a stroll down those narrow stone-paved streets to the Trevi Fountain or the grand Colosseum. And how nice would it be to spend an evening sitting in one of those little family run pizza places while drinking red wine, listening to Italian chatter aka music to my ears and getting utterly lost in the twinkling lights of this one-of-a-kind spot.
Fun fact: Can you guess how much money gets tossed each year to the famous Trevi Fountain? Well, according to the City of Rome, nearly a whopping €700,000 worth of coins gets tossed in each year. Yozwa! The awesome part is that all the proceeds are donated to Caritas to help the needy.
P.S: Remember Positano or Venice?
P.P.S: Plus the dreamy Isola della Gaiola!
