|This guy looks like our bellman|
CHECKING IN AND CHECKING OUT - After our car pulled up in front of the hotel, a bellman with deep blue eyes opened the front door for us as and took our luggage inside. We looked at each other and agreed he was hot. So, we "checked in" to the Hotel Bernini Bristol and we couldn't stop "checking out" the incredibly handsome, dark-haired, athletically built, blue-eyed bell man. We both went to the hotel desk to check in and we were looking for 5 Euro to tip the bellman. After checking in, we noticed the hot guy was back outside and another bellman took our luggage. How disappointing. :)
FIRST IMPRESSION OF ROME - We took a short walk to the Trevi Fountain from our hotel. The streets were very crowded and there was heavy traffic. When we arrived at the fountain it was so jam-packed with people that it was hard to see it. We learned that Italians love their cigarettes. There were so many smokers walking all over the place!
|Tridente Cafe booths|
GREAT TINY RESTAURANT IN ROME - Fortunately, we found a very small cafe with indoor seating only (3 booths) called "Tridente Cafe." It's located on Via del Tritone 170, Rome, Italy. We wound up having a super-delicious pasta dinner there. Of course, it helped that the cook/waiter/everything was another handsome Italian man.
