|The Winey Family at St. Peter's|
On day 4 of our wonderful vacation, we spent the entire, and I mean entire day in Vatican City. (And we still never saw it all.) The Vatican Museums, the Raphael rooms, the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's, climbing to the Dome (narrowest staircase ever). At one point, I was fairly sure my feet had fallen off, since I couldn't feel them. I say fairly sure because I was too tired to expend the energy to bend my head and actually look down at them, but I'm sure they were gone. It was an awe-inspiring day and we gladly decided to take the subway back to the hotel (usually we walk as much as we can in cities because you see so much more when you are walking through the neighborhoods). As we crawled off the subway, happy, but hungry, we decided that it was the perfect night to check out Ristorante Target (which was its actual name, we discovered). To add to the fun, we found it listed in our Rick Steves' Italy guide, where he told us that it was highly recommended by all the hotels in that area. And it was right around the corner from our beds.

baby grand piano in the corner! Our table
is the one you see front right.
They were good sports at the restaurant and gave us the (empty) bottle to take home (it was one of the smaller bottles...375 ml, so it was easy to slip inside a pair of socks for safe suitcase travel).
You should be able to find Livon out and about on your wine search. If you like a refreshing, tart but not lip puckering wine, you'll like this just fine. Pair it with chicken, seafood pasta or with a day of sightseeing in the world's smallest country, Vatican City.
