Off Civitavecchia, Italy. October, 2011

Today we’re headed into what has been the port of Rome for centuries, Civitavecchia. Last year when we arrived here, we headed subito to the train station and sped into Rome proper. This time, as we’re aiming to sail out again in the afternoon, we’re hoping to spend some time in this busy port town. There’s a market (of course) and also a local flea market to be explored. And we’re hoping that we’ll be close enough to Rome that the lunch menu at some little trattoria might feature the Roman specialties we fell in love with on past trips: spaghetti cacio e pepe and carciofi alla giudea. Fortunately I not only know how to order both in Italian, but can easily ask for lo stesso ancora. The same again.
