Rome: Lunch @ Taverna Del Corso

The weather was really hot when I was in Rome; it was like some kind of heatwave. It was even hotter than Germany during that late June I was there last year.

As I was still bidding a sad farewell to St Peter's, we walked along the street, scouting for food to fill our stomach as it was approaching lunch hour.

We found the restaurant recommended by Steve for all Europe travelers in his guide book which we have in our hand

Nothing fancy; we just needed a place to feed ourselves and shield from the aggressive sun for a while before we get back out there for the next destination on the list.

I definitely recommend this restaurant as the owner was really friendly; and even struck up a conversation with us as he guessed that we came from Asia.
He was not unfriendly or snobbish like some of the restauranteurs in Europe who are bound to turn up their noses at Asians or at those small orders we have made.

Kudos to this great attitude; he was very hospitable towards us and thanked us non-stop for visiting his restaurant which earned him a post for me to mention it to all of you out there!:)

It was time to be back out on the street and we enjoyed the slow walk along the Roman streets; window-shopping as we can!

The Italians are a patriotic lot; don't you think?

Coming from a land of fancy automobiles, even their cops have such nice patrol cars!

Rome is indeed a City of ART; look at all those lovely paintings, even on the floor!
