Today was our first day in Rome. John decided to stay in and rest his feet. He has been to Rome many times. I have only been once and didn’t do a tour of the Vatican or Sistine Chapel last time Lisa and I were here so I decided to go there today.
One quick helpful hint. If your credit card doesn’t have Visa Verify or the similar product for MasterCard you can’t buy your tickets on the official Vatican website. I called Bank of America but was unable to get it resolved so I decided to just go and get the tickets there. Luckily it is off season so there are plenty available.
I did a group tour in English. Both the tour of the Vatican, it’s Museums and the Sistine Chapel were breathtaking. I’m going to narrow my pictures down to only five for this post. Pictures aren’t allowed in the Sistine Chapel so there are no pictures from my visit there. Of course Michelangelo’s work was wonderful to see there.
I will say that John may have had the right idea in relaxing today. My feet and back are sore fom walking around all those sites today.
Have a great Monday!
