Buongiorno, Grazie, Per favore… It was time to start learning a few local words as has been our practice when visiting a new place. Italy had been on our bucket list for a while and finally, everything was in place.
Day 1 : Arrival
We arrived in Rome on April 21st, 2017 which incidentally happened to be the 2770th birthday of the city. Since we had reached late in the evening, we decided to have dinner and retire early. This was our first tasting of authentic Italian pasta and pizza and it was absolutely scrumptious. The food was nothing like the “Italian” food which we get back home. It was more basic, less frills and more taste. We quickly got used to this new experience.
