Whilst visiting Rome in 2011, we had a delicious four-course dinner at The Cabiria Restaurant on the Via Veneto. We ate our meal up on the roof terrace overlooking the city, whilst being serenaded by a wonderful guitarist and singer. At the end of the evening, there was a long line of people waiting for the elevator which could take only seven at a time, so a few of us opted to go down this spiral staircase. It was a very steep and winding descent….. 186 steps. Fortunately I’d only had only one glass of wine, so made it safely to the bottom.
