Small treasures in the center of Rome…

You are walking in the historic center of Rome?
Before making a stop (recommended) to Ciampini Bar in Piazza S. Lorenzo in Lucina for an ice cream cone, you should definitely pay a visit to DODI Boutique in Vicolo Torretta.

Follow the palm trees … in front of the small boutique!
Then, madame Dodi welcomes you to “make you plunge” in this little wishing well.
Not only clothes, but also bags (divine!) and accessories from select fashion.

Then continue in the Vicolo della Torretta up to the number 60, where you will find a lovely local  restaurant “Vini  e Buffet”, simple and unpretentious, with great value for money. Suggestions for the afternoon?
A walking aimlessly in the nearby Via di Campo Marzio, to the ancient Church of S. Maria in Campomarzio. (VIII century).

This church, although the Roman obedience, is a temple Catholic Eastern Rite of Antioch, and the religious function there is still celebrated in Aramaic airo-palistenese, the language that was spoken the time of Jesus Christ.
