After our full day on the Scavi tour and at the Vatican museums, it was time for some downtime for our last night in Rome.
We just wanted to go to a nearby restaurant and have an easy dinner and an early night. Bill also thought it would be fun to go to an Italian supermarket and also pick up some snacks for our train trip the next day. So that was the plan!
The supermarket was a cute little community one like an Australian IGA or the small Associated we have in our neighbourhood. This was so much fun and we just had to share some of the photos we took in there!
The Deli –
Smurfs were everywhere!
Some familiar things –
Chocolate pasta anyone?
Italian lollies –
The refrigerated section provided some entertainment!
WUDY! What an awesome brand name –
Italian ‘snackables’ –
Pronti in 5 minuti!
For Steve and Colette!
Pasta heaven –
BÃ©chamel sauce in a tetra pack! GENIUS!
Is it just for Big Americans?!
I don’t think anyone paid any attention to the sign –
The line to get to the checkout… we just hung out by the freezer for a while!
I wanted to walk out of the door with the whole Kinder display –
We then popped in to the restaurant around the corner for some dinner. We thought it looked touristy but all we were thinking was food and then bed. It was a FANTASTIC meal! We were so surprised – it was a great way to end our time in Rome. It may not have been the coolest place but wow – the food was great.. and cheap!
Here is our dinner at Ristorante ‘Steak House’. Now you can understand why we thought it would be an average meal.
This pizza was absolutely amazing –
And so was this carbonara –
We then headed back to Domus for our last night. Some last minute packing and getting our things in order was all that was needed before we drifted off before our early morning wake up for our train to Venice.
