A Sunday afternoon in Rome

Just another beautiful, sunny and pleasant day in downtown Rome. Looks like people are already doing their Xmas shopping. Here are some pics of my walk down via del Babuino which links Piazza del Popolo to Piazza di Spagna. I was on my way to meet friends to see the Lippi Botticelli in Florence '400 exhibit running at the Scuderie del Quirinale.

 Atelier Canova great place to stop and have afternoon tea or an aperitif. You could describe it as a museum in a restaurant.

 Beautiful shoes on display at Sergio Rossi.
