Flowers at Campo de Fiori
Last day in Italy :( We missed the Vatican....AGAIN. We got there two minutes after last entry. Grrrrrrrrrr!!!! Oh well, what can you do. Just another excuse to come back to Italy, right? :) We went to the Campo di Fiori and then split up. I wanted to visit the sites from my favorite movie of all time, Roman Holiday, so the first stop was the Mouth of Truth. The line was too long to get in so I just snapped a few pictures from the outside. I walked back along the Circo Massimo (which a few months later would be swarmed with Italians watching the World Cup!) and then went to the Spanish Steps, where I ate my lunch and gelato :) I visited the street where the character of Joe Bradley lived -- Via Margutta. I think it's actually 51 Via Margutta, but I couldn't find it!
Ngoc and I met up later at the Spanish Steps so we could walk over and get our last gelato (I had the gianduia and nocciola) and then we threw our coins in the Trevi Fountain. Our time in Italy was ending and I was very sad to leave. I had such an amazing time! But first, we were going to London, one of my favorite cities in the world!
