Arrivederci, Roma!

August 12, 2012

We learned to puff out our chests, hold our chins high in the air, and look down upon the rest of the barbaric world like true Romans (thanks to Gastone, our guide at the Colosseum). We shopped, we ate, we napped, we ate some more, and then had gelato.

Prosciutto, Soppressata picante, Chinghaile salame, mozzarella di bufala, focaccia, olives

Mazzancolle

Spaghetti con vongole

Filet with prosciutto, purple Peruvian potato chips, and the most neon-green olive oil we’ve ever seen

Fancy cannoli–they’d probably call it “deconstructed cannoli” on Top Chef.

John’s worried that he loved Rome so much that the rest of Italy won’t compare. I’m betting a gazillion euro that he’s really got nothing to worry about.

Gelato flavors tried to date: melone, pistachio, pear, chocolate, oreo, nutella, champagne, pineapple

Next stop: Sorrento.

    I’ll take that bet with John as well! It will help fund my retirement! You won’t believe how great Central and Northern Italy will be – ENJOY~!!!
