    Rome 2

    September 26, 2019 in Vatican City ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    Vatican Museum photos, we weren’t allowed to photograph in the Sistine Chapel and we had to make sure our knees and shoulders were covered. Just realised I didn’t tell you about our mad dash round the Basilica, well what happened was the little map we were given by the Hotel turned out to be not very accurate so we headed for where we thought we were meeting to collect our museum tickets only to find out, when we couldn’t find the street in question, that we needed to be the other side and we only had 5 minutes to get there. *ugger, off we go walking fast, marching, jogging, then running when we realise just how far we have to go. Lots of ‘scuzi’s’ later and we get there in time and apologise to everyone for holding them up. Just glad the museum pieces need to be kept at a low is hard temperature so we’re able to cool again. Tomorrow we are headed to Colosseum, Palantine Hill, Roman Forum and Basilica so should get a few more miles in our legs before returning to the boat.Read more
