... He put his life on the line on a couple of occasions:) Last day - a very early start to check out the Vatican. I had purchased early access tour to view the Vatican and Sistine Chapel. Very good move - the general public were already lined up for miles when we got there at 7.30 - general admission wasn't open till 9am!

... from a visit to the Cathedral we were disappointed with the state of the city, very untidy and dirty. The highlight was the campanile on the cathedral tower which played at midday. It included a Lion roaring 3 times, a Rooster crowing 3 times and various figurines in procession. (See picture). Fascinating. l99g
