St. Peter’s, Old Bridge, and Castel Sant’ Angelo

Yesterday we went to St. Peter’s (which was open only to some specific people to see the pope) When Andrew (who was ahead of the rest of us at that point) saw that St. Peter’s was closed he sent Alex a text saying “St. P’s is closed, Old Bridge?” to which Alex promptly called back and said “meet you there in about 5 minutes”. In our opinion Old Bridge is the best gelato shop in Rome. It is also conveniently located quite close to St. Peter’s.

After that we went down to the Spanish steps area. The boys went to look at the Ferrari store, Mom and Dad went and rested a bit on the Spanish Steps, while I window-shopped along the Via dei Condotti which is home to stores such as Armani, Gucci, Prada, and Louis Vuitton.

    Hey Philly! It looks like all you big and little De Piante’s are having a great time…especially eating that gelato! Bring some home!!! Tell your mom that I want to see her in a Lamborghini and ditch the Vespa…the Lamborghini is faster! And you can fit more gelato in the trunk! You’re in our prayers.
