On day 7 our goal was to drive from Siena to Rome, drop the car off at the airport, and get situated in our hotel. We left early on Sunday and decided to stop in the tiny town of Civita. Now this is what I call a real hill town. I would guess there are less than 100 people that live in this town which is situated on a small hill and only accessible via footbridge. We arrived early enough that there were no other tourists. Even though it was a little foggy, the views were awesome. Jenn has a little bit of a problem with heights so she had a little anxiety walking up and down the footbridge.
After Civita we made the trip to the Rome airport which really was stress free. We then got on the train from the airport to downtown rome and then took the metro to the closest stop to our hotel. We stayed at the Artemide Hotel.
Since it was getting a little late in the day we decided to take a cab to Pizzeria Da Baffetto. The last time we were in Rome we got addicted to this pizza. We've always went to the original at Via del Governo Vecchio and have never been disappointed. Be warned that if you don't get there early, you'll be waiting in line. There will also be a good chance that you'll be sitting at the table with someone else.The 3 times we were there on this trip 2 times we sat next to someone. We first sat next to some young girls from Korea and the next night next to a nice couple from Australia.
