The Corso del Rinascimento runs alongside the Piazza Navona, casually waiting for the bus I caught a glimpse of a curious looking store called Dolciumi e frutta secca Onorati.
To my delight it was full of Italian confectionary (candied fruits, chocolate, biscuits, nuts, candy). I purchased some Pastiglie Leone violet pastilles (that come in the most gorgeous tin), and a couple tins of Amaretti Virginia biscuits. Although a lot more money could have easily been spent!
Definately one of my favourite stores in Rome, easily accessible too!
