Ferrero's Nutella B-ready is really not bad! Crisp wafer of bread in the form of mini - baguette stuffed with creamy Nutella! A lot less sinful than the usual Kinder Bueno!

After our €1 offering, it lit up so beautifully and gold!

To the Colosseum next! Been there before so we didn't go in and it was also because the queue was really long! We took some photos outside, the photos were all taken with my iPhone because the skies were so blue and the lighting was just right!

Lunch at Cafe Café which is just across Colosseum!

Before we went back to the apartment to take a rest, we decided to visit Fontana di Trevi which we initially wanted to skip.

Coins are purportedly meant to be thrown using the right hand over the left shoulder. The legend holds that a coin thrown into the fountain will ensure a return to Rome. This tradition also dates back to the ancient Romans who often threw coins in water to make the gods of water favor their journey or help them get back home safely. (Throw in a second coin if you’re seeking love – even a third for wedding bells!)

We made a table reservation at il Gatto e l'Uva which is ranked #83 of 9,290 Restaurants in Rome! Day 1 and Day 2 dinners were our best meals this trip! Surprisingly, this meal was cheaper than day 1's dinner though we had more food!
