Itlay: Stumbled on Surprise

After seeing the "Mouth of Truth," we decided to cross the river and explore. After the most tasty Italian Ice - Lime & Coconut - we stumbled upon these ruins in the area known as "The Ghetto."

I couldn't read any of the signs - all in Italian, and I can't seem to find much information on what these ruins are... But by far, they were our favorite. There was a sense of peace walking down in them - no crowds - just history. The coolest part - people LIVE above them! You can see the windows up on the very top! If I ever live in Rome - this is where I want to be!
Right next door, the famous "Da Gigghetto" Restaurant. Try the deep fried artichokes and the stuffed zucchini flowers. YUM!
