The first stop of the day was Francesco’s neighborhood which is near the Vatican. We got there via his secretly known back streets bypassing the infamous Rome traffic jams. The first order of business was his favorite coffee shop where we all had a cappuccino. This was like no other cappuccino I've ever had. Excellent describes it best! From there we went to a nearby hill where we had a great view of the Vatican and Rome.
