Today we were in another small group of 10, the 4 of us, a mom and daughter from Ohio and a family of 4 from New Zealand. It was a great group, all food lovers...my people! Trastevere is a small neighborhood on the other side of the Tiber river. It's a very tight knit community, not touristy at all, well except for those of us tourists that want to get away from other tourists and experience real Roman food :)
After stuffing ourselves silly we took a taxi to St. Mark's Square on the off chance that the rain had kept away the tourists and we could get into to the Vatican. This was the only spot that I didn't pre-buy tickets. The kids weren't crazy excited about seeing it so we said that if one day we had down time then we would go. When the taxi drove by and we saw huge lines in the rain, we told the taxi to keep on driving to the Trevi Fountain. We realized that Bella hadn't thrown a coin over her shoulder yet...a must do! But when we got out we realized that we didn't have any coins on us. Honest to goodness, Bella looked down and there was a shiny coin right at her feet!!! She picked it up and gave it a good toss (into the make-shift fountain they have set up in front of the scaffolding).
Tomorrow is our short road trip through Tuscany!
