... train station, radio station, etc. What is now the museum was originally the Pope's summer residence. The museum was filled with amazing sculptures, paintings and tapestries all acquired and or commissioned by the Pope during the relevant time. From the different collections, we headed to the Sistine Chapel - you are not allowed to take photos, videos, or even speak while inside (Colleen snapped a few unauthorized photos and even got ...

It's fun to hear fluent Italian spoken by people of every ethnicity you could ...

... to do to avoid the long lines at Colosseum is to buy your ticket at the Roman Forum as they have a combined ticket of EUR 12 pp. We ate some snacks outside the Roman Forum in the line for the tickets. There are lots of small eating stalls all over selling pizzas, sandwiches etc.

Roman Forum is vast and really old. The interior part is closed but you can see mostly all the ruins. This is where ancient Rome started. After this you go to Palatine Hill which has a great view and ...
