Questa Sera

This evening we crossed the bridge to Castel San Angelo. It was Hadrian’s Tomb and then a Papal fortress, later a Papal residence. Statues of angels guard the bridge over the Tiber. We walked back across another bridge and realized how close we are to St. Peter’s.This evening ate at Navona Notte and had the most delicious pasta con vongoli, (clams, but also mussels, scampi, swollen tomatoes). Oh, and I did fry the zucchini flowers and made a caprisi salad in our apartment. We ate a lot today. Oggi abbiamo mangiato molto!

    Sara–Roma es bellissimo!! The history you are seeing is just so amazing! Did you do research on all of these wonders before the trip? Also, love the way you photograph–the gorgeous sky, so blue!

    Your pasta dinner sounds heavenly, and so does your homecooked lunch! How much fun!!

      Jana, I guess I’ve been studying Italy for years, since I became obsessed with the country in 1999. Mostly we just discover things as we go. Thanks for commenting. Riposo (nap time) and time for another post. Ciao.

    Now this is more like it! The seafood pasta sounds wonderful, and those fried zucchini flowers – yum! Loved the photo of the bridge over the Tiber – so beautiful, like a painting. Richard and Jack seem happy and relaxed – yay!
