Last Day

Today, we slept in, had breakfast on the terrace, and then walked back through the Borghese Gardens to the Roma Zoo.  We saw a bunch of animals…

It was great to have a relaxing day.  We walked back to our apartment for lunch and hung out for a while, then drove to Tivoli.

We went to Tivoli to try a restaurant our neighbor, Antonia, recommended.  We are so glad we went! It is called Ristorante Sibilla Di La Mura Luigia.  We sat outside under the wisteria-covered pergola.

The restaurant has been open since 1730 and is right next to the ruins of the Roman Temple of Vesta and the Sanctuary of the Sybil.  The patio is next to a deep canyon and you can hear waterfalls rushing from your table.  There are plaques all along the building, engraved with the names of all of the royal figures that have dined here over the years.  It really is indescribable - you all just have to go and check it out yourselves!

We had an amazing meal and talked about all of the places we have been and all of the things we have seen over the last two weeks.  We are all so sad that it is ending, but so grateful we had this incredible time together.  Now, we are packing up and getting ready to head to the airport tomorrow.  We are looking forward to getting home, but all four of us realize how truly special this trip was, and we know we will never forget it.

Thank you Antonia for telling us about Sibilla!  It was the absolute perfect way to close out our trip!
