rome in 150 pictures part 3 is my last day in rome and in italy.
we dropped our luggage in termini station and went out one last time. we took a bus to reach our next destination. until we got off, we passed by some of the main tourist attractions.
here we are. the new testaccio market is lovely. i definitely recomend a visit: the vegetables, fruit, flowers and fish are colourful and inspiring. they make you want to move to rome and cook from scratch evry day. oh, and improve your italian to be able to gossip with the people.
this fish lives on the bottom of the sea, hidden under the sand. it’s barely visible in the picture but it has a tiny part of his body hanging above his mouth. that can be moved at will and it will act as bait for the fish that will end up as lunch. its italian name is rana pescatrice – fishing frog lol. in english, they call it angler or monkfish.
cleck here to read more about the market and its vendors. tip: we had sandwiches made by mr. esposito and we confirm they were so delicious!
we had a few more hours to kill before we had to be at the airport. we just walked around the city center.
a miss van piece.
this was heaven! do not go if you are on a diet. so delicious – the lime cannoli was the best, that’s why it’s not even in the picture…
this is in campo de fiori.
this is one of the three fountains in the fabulous piazza navona.
one quick visit at the pantheon.
and this is the newly restored and the ever splendid fontana di trevi.
this was it! rome was beautiful and so were all the parts of italy we visited. i’m already planning future trips to other italian places!
