Salvatore took us to the Egyptian embassy for a 'surprise' I won't spoil it but just say it involves a keyhole.
We saw the spanish steps, trevi fountain (got out there for photos)and the usual buildings. Made a stop above Rome so we could see the city. The only disappointment of the day was that when we got to st Peter's, the security queue was so long that we didn't have time to go in. There had been some sort of evacuation of St Peter's Square that day because of a demonstration. I have been before but still wanted to go in again but these things sometimes can't be helped. For lunch Salvatore booked us into a local restaurant (I mean a restaurant for locals, not tourists) It was quite amazing. They came out with huge plates of all sorts of stuff, huge carafes of wine and then 3 different pastas followed by desserts. The owner then came with a free bottle of limoncello. We paid 20 Euros each for all that and the experience of eating in a 'real' Italian restaurant with people who were real characters. I would highly recommend it.
