    Thank you for your posts, very useful for our holiday

    I found in particular very good Pozzetto with its Gelato and Expresso coffee, which was like in Italy, probably better then the ones we had in Rome in another famous place called Giolitti. Like Giolitti the ice cream is hidden behind the…Pozzetto. The place is central but you may miss it so I live the web site
    Try it, it is fantastic

    Just thought I’d mention that concerts in Notre Dame may not be worth visiting, see why on
