Rome is… a Queen Bee

I love the water. I love the fountains of water features, ergo, I love Rome.
Because in this city, you will find many fountains, as in no other city.

Decorative elements, the fountains of Rome, from the most famous to the drinking fountains, are scattered throughout the city.
Each has a story and every design element has a meaning.

Nothing was left to chance, as the FONTANA DELLE API, the Fountain of the Bees, one of my favorite small fountains, in Piazza Barberini.
It has been  a tribute to Pope Urban VIII and to the family emblem, precisely the bees.

The Latin inscription informed that this fountain, was a gift of the Pope, and the water was available to the people and animals.

But surely you will not miss a visit to the Trevi Fountain to throw a coin behind ….

It’s been 26 years since it snowed in Rome…

Today I had prepared another post but this morning when I woke up, a surprise awaited me!

Who likes the snow in the city? I like!

Or rather, I like to see the effect it does in Rome wake up under a white blanket up to 50 cm high!

It’s been 26 years since it snowed in Rome …

It looks like magic, I expect to see elves jump from one monument to another … while the gulls seem to be asking where are they!

So far, all meet in Piazza del Popolo for a “Snowballs battle”!

I begin to prepare myself!

A very special FLAT sandwich!

A little hungry?

Between a walk and a visit to a museum, if you do not want to waste time and eat something quick but tasty, I recommend you to stop at this delicious sandwich bar: La Sandwicheria!

Just a stone’s throw from the Trevi Fountain, this delightful little shop welcomes you with its blackboards on the walls, where you can choose from a wide variety of sandwiches …

The owners are very kind and smart, so the service is fast and attentive!

Special flattened bread, stuffed with tasty sauces and ingredients of excellent quality.

I stopped there just a few days ago and… it’s worth it!
