La dolche vita and the $7 coneSeptember 17, 2017 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 19 °C
There is one street in Rome that beautiful people strut there stuff. It is called the La dolce Vita walking zone. We read about this in the Rick Steves book and assumed this was just hype. When we mentioned this to our Umbrian host she immediately knew which street -- so apparently this was the real deal. We took a stroll and enjoyed the action. People were painting, building sand sculptures, and playing music.
But the crazy high point was a gelato shop that was "over the top". As you walk into the store you see the entire back wall is a "chocolate fall" -- as in 780 pounds of molten chocolate flowing down a wall that spanned about 40 feet. This place was Jamming! When you order a cone you can get the crown dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with nuts. Then they fill the bottom of the cone with chocolate. Then you pick three flavors of gelato. This is not on our diet!
But it WAS an experience!
And with that, we check out of Rome and return to our home
