We meandered through some of our usual haunts and backstreets near the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. To our great delight, we found a row of beautiful Italian designer stores, including Dolce and Gabbana and Valentino. After browsing through Valentino, and leaving breathless, we headed up to the "Hard Rock Cafe" for lunch. I think it was the best meal I have had so far in Rome! Who would have thought?!!
Our afternoon comprised of more strolling and browsing and sending one more postcard from the Vatican. Sadly, our plan to attend 5pm mass at St Peter's was thwarted by the hundreds of people who had the same idea.

And so it is - our last night in Rome. What a wonderful time we have had. Here's hoping those coins we threw into the Trevi Fountain fulfil their powers to bring us back to this fabulous city! Tricia
