It appears Sofia traded in her heels for something a little more comfortable to go sightseeing the following day, wrapping up in a padded coat, T-shirt and jeans to explore more of the city's landmarks including the Tiber river, and tuck into more traditional Italian cuisine including pizza and tiramisu. And the 44-year-old certainly appears to be enjoying her trip, telling her 12.1 million Instagram followers she felt "blessed" to be waking up to views across the city.
