Today it was raining and COLD…a good ten degrees colder than we thought. Early afternoon, we walked a good deal around the Duomo and went to the Accademia to see “David” and his gargantuan right hand. But first…the FOOD
We had a sandwich at this hole in the wall place called I Fratellini that has been around since 1875. They were tasty sammies. Jose had prosciutto and mozzarella and I had salami and mozzarella. They are just bread and a little filling, not meant to be a lunch, but more of a snack. We were so full, though that we didn’t eat anything else (except dessert….keep reading)
They were 2.50 euros each, very affordable. They have 29 kinds, and we will probably go back tomorrow to try another kind. It’s a little window shop in the middle of an alley doing some incredible business, as seen in the photo below.
On the way to the Accademia, we stopped for some gelato. Chocolate and panna cotta, which was delicious -tasted like caramel custard. We couldn’t resist. OK, I couldn’t resist. 🙂
We entered through the line on the left and on the right is the line for “no reservations” that goes around the building and down the block.
After about two hours, we left the Accedemia and the rain was coming down harder so we stopped into a shop to have hot chocolate and a Nutella waffle. The hot cocoa was very thick, and not too sweet. It was very rich.
