What to do in Rome a girls weekend?
Have a good breakfast in a cute cafe in the center of Rome
After Friday's early morning, the flight left Barcelona at six in the morning, the first thing we did as soon as we arrived in Rome was to go to breakfast. We opted for him Gusto coffee, located in Piazza Augusto Imperatore, 9, near Via del Corso and our apartment. There we take one of the best caffe latte I've tried and a mozzarella panini and tomato I can't think of a better way to start the day.
Selection of cakes from Cafe Gusto
Baroque route and the squares of Rome
Having an architect in the group and a Humanities student is a luxury and Vero prepared a route through the most important monuments of the baroque in Rome.
In the Vatican starting the baroque route in Rome
We start our route in The Vatican, with its square of colonnades designed by Bernini, to continue the piazza Navona where we discovered the confrontation between Bernini and Borromini. We saw the beautiful concave facade of the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone designed by Borromini and in front, the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi in which Bernini represented the four longest rivers known to date: the Nile, the Ganges, the Danube and the Río de la Plata. As Bernini said that the concave facade of Sant'Agnese would fall, one of the fountain's sculptures is depicted ready to hold the facade when it falls. Finally the facade did not fall.
Jumping in front of the Pantheon
The route followed by Pantheon of Agrippa, my favorite building in Rome, where we came across a concert of corals inside. Before continuing our baroque route, we made a refreshment stop at the Della Palma ice cream shop (Via della Maddalena 19/23), an ice cream parlor a few meters from the Pantheon that has 150 flavors of ice cream. It is very difficult to decide which one to try but I recommend the Black passion (dark chocolate and raspberry) that is of vice.
One of the traditions that you can not stop doing in Rome is throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain. This fountain is the largest in the city and is located in a place quite small for the enormous size of the fountain, which usually amazes first-time visitors. They say that if you throw a coin you return to Rome (With two you find love and with three you get married). And I can assure you it works! 😀
Buying with Roser a passport back to Rome ...
We finish our Baroque route through Rome, going up to the Quirinale and visiting the church of San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane, designed by Borromini and that receives that name because at the crossroads where the church is there is a fountain in each corner. A few meters away from this, we again encounter the Bernini-Borromini conflict, since we found the church of Sant'Andrea al Quirinale, designed by Bernini.
Route through Rome in a retro FIAT 500
On Saturday morning we did a different and very special tour of Rome: we discovered new corners of the eternal city mounted in a FIAT 500 vintage from the hand of Rome 500 Experience.
Pat and Vero prepared for the route
It was super fun to get behind the wheel of a pink FIAT 500 and get to know new points of the city such as the church of Santa Sabina, the church of San Pietro in Montorio or Mount Janiculum, where every day at twelve a cannon shot marks the time The Angelus and all the bell towers of Rome begin to ring the bells.
