Since today is a travel day, yup we’re on the move again, I thought it was a good time to show off the wonderful apartment we had in Rome. The apartment is huge – living room,  fully appointed kitchen stocked with anything you could want – including a full pantry, a large bedroom, bathroom, and huge close perfect for luggage and keeping all your stuff organized. The ceiling is brick throughout and it’s a treat to look at and try to find the oldest date stamp!

When we arrived, the apartment owner, Alessandra, met us at our car and took us to the apartment. Located a couple blocks from the Vatican, it is in a building that was previously a convent.  A huge door, and I mean HUGE opens into a common courtyard. The apartment is on the first floor so there’s not a lot of stairs. After hiking all over Sicily this is a piece of cake. Alexandra showed us the apartment and sat down with us to tell us about the area. some history of the building and places to check out. Of course we asked her where the best gelato was and the best pizza, etc. I can’t forget to mention the wonderful welcome basket full of fantastic food and cookies – and yes we actually were too tired to go out for dinner one night and cooked in – with the basket of goodies and the full pantry dinner was a snap. Note – restaurants in Italy don’t open for dinner until 8 pm!
