Romantic Rome

Evan and I spent last week soaking up the sunshine in Rome visiting some friends and drinking lots of vino rosso! I whipped the old Hipstamatic app out at every opportunity as per – and I had a lovely time snapping away…

I spent a long time pacing the streets searching for the vintage shops that were listed in my guide book – but sadly the book was about ten years old and we never found the shops! Luckily, we had a lot of fun looking though, and stumbled across some gorgeous places off the beaten track.

I loved the look of this “Tipografia” shop, and bought some fabulously kitsch Catholic ornaments. Not sure Evan ‘gets’ them, tee hee! We had a fabulous week away, and we returned to Islington feeling very refreshed.

    Via Governo Vecchio in Rome has lots of vintage shops. It is in the area behind the Piazza Navona and well worth walking around anyway. It is a bit like the Trastevere area and there are interesting restaurants as well.
