All roads lead to Rome so let’s continue our way.
Like I told you here, I was invited to a blogger weekend by Mercure hotels in Rome where we ate so well and where we were privileged enough to visit the Vatican before it opens and parts of the Coliseum closed to the public… but that’s not all.
After visiting the one in Torino and in Milan I had the chance to go to the one in Rome which is the biggest Eataly in the world (Eataly exits also in the US, in Japan, in Istanbul, in Dubai and soon in Paris). Eataly is a gourmet supermarket, a place of production (for mozzarella, bread and beer) and a cultural center (kitchen classes, exhibitions) of 17 000 m2 on 4 levels. The Boyfriend was super jealous to miss that !
After several tastings till ours stomachs were full, we had a cooking class where we gave ourselves completely to the preparation of 3 dishes of 3 varieties of pasta and sauces under the watchful eyes of the biker chef Sergio who wasn’t always lenient with us : “What is that, is it a poopooh di Yorkshire ?!”.
After 3h of mixing, cutting, slicing, kneading, rolling and spreading (watch your fingers) we finally saw the results and because we just couldn’t throw everything away after working so hard, we had a second lunch at 4pm (no need to say that it was delicious) !

Roman strolls :
To finish, I’m taking you with me for some Roman strolls because as you know wandering is my favorite way to discover a city and soaking in the atmosphere of a city. If you love dolce vita you will love Roma and the washing hanging outside, ochre-façade houses, flowered balconies, majestic churches, countless fountains that adorn the squares, colorful old Fiat 500 in every little street for my biggest pleasure…
I’d like to thank again Mercure for this amazing weekend and in particular Mélissa and Virginie and the whole Roma team! I never sang happy birthday so many times in a weekend and never laughed so much. And do you know what ? The 6 friends theory appeared to be true because we realized that we shared acquaintances even outside the blog world !
« It’s a small world after all » and now you’re going to hum it for hours. No please don’t thank me for that it’s a pleasure. J And for those of you who are wondering I can tell you for having worked at Eurodisney that the people who are working in this attraction don’t get any hardship allowances… ah ah ah !
Bonus : a picture I took in Roma 2 years ago. I couldn’t have imagined this even in my wildest dreams and now I want the same thing if I get married one day !
