After snagging a cheap Norwegian flight via Air Tours we arrived to Rome’s airport just before lunch. Italian optimization and infrastructure however enabled us to see plenty of Rome already before we even got to our apartment. After a shuttle bus, a ride by the Metro and a stroll along some nice river later we finally found Via Dei Cappellari 24 which was just as picturesque as all Italian alleys. I will try to limit the alley photos but can’t give any promises 😉 Now we just changed clothes and are waiting for pizza at a bar/café nearby.
After a well needed shower and siesta we dragged ourselves out again around 2030, and headed towards Maccheroni after learning that this was the favorite place for a friend of Monas. Kudos to Lonely planet for giving away their city guides during volcano chaos last year, it was a breeze to find using the gps and their app. We waited at the bar for tables and were given some wine to pass the time. We shared a plate Braesola (of course with Parmesan) for starter, I had some gnocchi and Mona tried their Salti Bocca and a pear/Parmesan salad. It was very filling and especially the starter and salad tasted great. Neglecting dessert we headed home to our own alley as depicted to the right.
