The first visit the next day was the Trevi Fountain.

This the fountain that said if you throw in a coin, you will return to Rome. Likewise Colosseo, there was a huge crowd sitting around the fountain, under the sun with no shed. We treat ourselves to some gelati, took pictures of the fountain, help people take pictures with the fountain, looked at some touristy souvenirs and moved on to the Pantheon.

Further along, next stop was Pantheon. Like every other monument, it was on restoration. It was said that restoration work were usually done in May so that it would be ready without all the scaffolding come August with the high influx of tourist. By the look of it, not too sure if its this August or many years to come. Shrug.

Piazza Navona is where artists have their stalls set up, a good but but likely expensive place (comparatively) to sit at the nearby cafe and people watching...

... or people dressed up and pretend to be a statue (I'm sure there is a nice name to it that I don't know)

And I dropped the map here... we walked the whole piazza left, right, up, down, circle but unable to recover the map :( But lucky we have a spare one as it came together with the Roma Pass.

There was a lot of people everywhere, am not sure if of them were tourist... but look at the crowd

By that time, we were hungry but food at this area was really expensive, on both side of the road leading to this Spanish Steps were selling super expensive brand like Gucci, Max Mara and the likes of it. Hence the idea of grabbing dinner ... down the drain. We ended up travelling back to Termini Station, hopped in Conad (the supermarket in the station) and grabbed some food - pasta and mushroom soup. Forgot to snap a photo before eating :P

Side note: Windows 7 at work today.. :)
