Day 6: Rome

I am so grateful that this isn’t one of those “If this is Tuesday, this must be Belgium” tours because I am pretty darn tired and it’s only our second city.

We started out our day today visiting the Vatican: The Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s magnificent basilica, the Vatican museums. Like yesterday, the tour was much more thorough than when I was here 10 years ago. I was very happy to finally be able to see the Sistine Chapel, because it’s just one of those things you ought to do before you die. My only disappointment today was that Michelangelo’s Pieta was not open to the public. I was really looking forward to seeing that sculpture again, but at least I got to see it before.

After our tour we returned to the hotel and I crashed. I didn’t sleep well last night so I took a nap, which I never do. After I slept for a little while, I got out and walked around but really took it slow and easy. I think jet lag must be finally catching up with me!
