Where I stayed
Hello! Today was kind of a "transport" day. We were allowed to sleep in a bit before we left the Amalfi Coast region at 10:00. We drove for about 2 hours before stopping at a rest stop for lunch. I had a light lunch - best to be hungry for an Italian dinner. After another 2 hours in the bus, we arrived at Circone Hotel in Rome, which is different than the hotel we had originally planned to stay in. The weather in Rome: chilly and drizzling. Not the best weather, but it proves to me that I'm ready to go home. It's been a wonderful, crazy week, but with so little sleep, it is more tiring than a two-week tour. Circone Hotel is nice. We got a handicapped room because there are 3 of us. I did some uneventful shopping before returning in the rain to our room.
At 6:00, we went down to bar and had a brief social get-together with everyone else in our group before heading out to dinner
The restaurant was called "Rei dei Amici". The food was fabulous as well as the wine. Pasta course: ravioli with spinach sauce. We then had a light salad before the main course: veal saltimbocca - veal with prosciutto. So Roman - so good. For dessert, we had a small almond-flavored cake with a cup of espresso. I love espresso. After a wonderful farewell dinner, we left the restaurant and walked quickly back to the bus and drove back to the hotel.
I'm finished packing now and I'm not really looking forward to the plane ride. I enjoyed making new friends and trying new things.
