Local: Dante’s Pizza House has a lot of branches here in Rome. They serve the best pizza in our country. Which branch of Dante’s Pizza House are you looking for?
Tourist: My friends messaged me the branch and it’s near the Trevi Fountain. How far is it from here in St. Peter’s Basilica?
Local: Oh, it’s not that far from here. From St. Peter’s Basilica, you may go to Trevi Fountain by foot. It’ll take about 30 minutes. It’s also a nice way for sightseeing.
