Italian Odyssey 3 : The Vatican Museums and St Peter's

Continuing the account of our Italian Odyssey, this post details our visit to the Vatican Museums and St Peter’s Basilica. I’ll start with a confession : we’d actually stumbled across St Peter’s the day before our ‘planned’ visit, without realising what it was until we were pretty much standing in the square! 825 more words

Vatican City

Our first stop in Rome was Vatican City.  We were still jet-lagged from the flight, but found the energy to make it to our tour on time at 7:30 am sharp starting at the entrance to the Vatican.   223 more words
