I had gotten a recommendation from a reliable source, and I arrived way early. It was a bit difficult to find, since it's off Piazza del Popolo in an alleyway, but once found, I was at home!
Rick's story, along with his partner Massimo's is on their website; both from Southern California, and pursued their dream to live and work in Italy with two salons, one in Rome, one in Naples. I can't wait to go back, it was so much fun, and Rick, thank you for the great haircut and coloring---everyone in Spello (even the guys) noticed and thought I looked younger---that means I'm coming back!
Once they get into the taxi stand you will be in front of the Ristorante Rosetti at #5 Piazza del Popolo.
Salon where you can sit and enjoy some quiet away from the busyness that is Piazza del Popolo.
Salon Noi, I headed to Piazza Venezia to get the bus back to the Hilton. Here's a little bit of the scene as I walked along.
|Violin concerto---of course, it's Rome!|
|I guess they are everywhere!|
|The Aldo store was doing a brisk business|
|In Piazza Venezia I came upon a bride and groom having photos taken, I figured one more couldn't hurt! Love the uniform.|
|The getaway car!|
|Everywhere you look there is something ancient and someone taking a photo!|
|And, finally in the parking lot at the Hilton when I was leaving, my dream car, a PINK Fiat 500!|
