Today Ann Primack and I crossed the Tiber River to visit the Gardens of Palazzo Farnese! The air was light and the sky an intense blue. I drew for several hours!
Then we set off to wander home through the Tratevere neighborhood. We “hit” three different churches and saw exquisite mosaics.
We decided we definitely needed to stop for refreshments. I ordered a pastry but instead received a creamy cream custard with carmel on the top! I kept my miss-order and ate it with an espresso!
After a futile attempt at two churches to see Bernini’s sculptures, we caught the tram back to “our neighborhood” and headed out to the Pantheon for dinner.
We ate at Garnbini 1842!
What a treat.
I ordered a fried artichoke that you eat like potato chips!
Ann Primack goes home Wednesday. She has been a great restaurant buddy. We have experienced a range of restaurants. I figure I’ll do Rome only once. Right!
(Just so you know, I usually eat about 10pm for 3.5 Euros at the pizza place on the corner of Largo di Torre Argentina after a night of drawing!)
