Domenico, my Dad's cousin, lives in Rome. He is the most easy going, funniest, loveliest guy. He reminds me a lot of my brother, which is perhaps the reason why they get along so well.
We spent a day with Domenico walking around Rome. It was the most relaxing day. He is so knowledgable and gave us so much information about the eternal city.
It was the most glorious Spring day. Walking through the markets and down narrow, cobblestoned streets was magical. We had lunch in a little cafe in Trastevere, feasting on Bucatini all'Amatriciana (a regional pasta dish from Lazio) and Saltimbocca alla Romana. Bliss.
There's no place like Rome.
