The last day of any holiday is always a shopping day, and Piazza di Spagna is Rome’s most consumer based area! Brunch comprised of a frappucino and a generous porcini mushroom crepe at Numbs, Via Mario de Fiori.
After that a small walk away was the famous and most reasonable (1€ a scoop) Il Gelato in Piazza di Monte d’Oro, over 100 flavours both usual, unusual and bizarre!
Round One: Toasted Almond, Walnut, Rice with Sesame and Honey
Round Two: Blueberry Cream, Toasted Sesame, Strudel
The (almost) last supper was at Enoteca Trastevere, Via Lungaretta. A bruschetta platter of traditional tomato and brie and pear was for starters, then came the main of fettucine pasta with porcini mushrooms in a black truffle cream. Going for something other than pannacotta or gelato for dessert I opted for a semifreddo (partly frozen ice cream and cake), not the tastiest and it came with a strange luminous sour lemon sauce, but visually impressive.
