The Tiber River: where sometimes a fish is not just a fish...

A dream of mine has always been to swim across the Tiber.

Meanwhile, if you catch something like a fish with three eyes then know it's best to let it go.

Once a guy brought to the Missionary Sisters of Charity some fish he caught in the river and the volunteers cooked and fed them to the homeless they serve - and everybody said it was the best fish ever.

Would be best to do these things UPstream from Rome. Apparently the Tiber is reputed to have healing powers, but people were advised even in the middle ages to drink from it only above Rome.
