8:59am on Thursday, 22nd July, 2010:
Snippets of overheard conversation:
At the Forum: "It's incredible that these guys were building aqueducts before Columbus discovered America!"
At the Trevi Fountain: "So why are these called the Spanish Steps?"
In a restaurant: "I don't want the Bolognese sauce, I want the meat sauce!"
In a restaurant: "Is that bread? Take it away, I'm allergic to bread."
In a restaurant (to son, holding a newly-bought figurine of an ancient Roman soldier): "He looks tough, he must have been a centaur."
Outside the Pantheon: "You can't smell pizza. Pizza doesn't have a smell."
In the Piazza Minerva:
(Tour Guide) "So here we have an elephant with an obelisk on its back."
(Tourist) "What a great idea!"
Sorry, Americans, I do know these people aren't entirely representative...
