    Hi @Listlad, I just got back yesterday! Can confirm it's very easy to stay low carb - most restaurants we went to had a lot of meat or seafood options served with fresh green veg which was more than enough for me. For lunch we usually made our own and I usually bought a multipack of salami and cheese from the supermarket to snack on. I may have indulged in one scoop of gelato as a treat for avoiding all other carby options but that was my own choice and you definitely will not have any problems :)

    We went cheap and stayed about 40 minutes outside of the city centre in Municipio III. You're right near all the action!!

    The parents of a girl in my daughters class went there a few weeks back on honeymoon and they stayed opposite the coloseum.

    Anyhow thanks for the feedback.

    Okay. We got back yesterday. We located a branch of Carrefour supermarket near the hotel that had a good range low carb friendly products. I tended to go for the meat and cheese platters.
