Ok, sorry for the corny cliche title, but I think it sums up our time in Rome well, and how often can you make a title like that? Besides, it has good alliteration, and you can't just ignore something like that. We spent two nights in Milan, and three nights in Rome, and will spend two nights in venice, making our stay in Italy just under a week long. Milan was nice enough - very posh with people looking as fashionable as the Parisians, if not more so. Not to mention it ...
... One of the most amazing things I think we learned however is why there is constantly running water all over Rome. They were literally so smart that they designed a system that delivered 40 gallons of water per person per day, and it was clean water to boot. The kicker? That type of efficiency was not seen again in Rome until the 1970s because of the dark ages, and the 1980s in places like New York, unreal. That's ...
... Pio-Clementino Museum, and then continued on to the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums. In the Vatican Museums we specifically got to tour the Gallery of the Candelabra, Gallery of Tapestries, Gallery of Maps and the Raphael Rooms.

Another audio guide had us in the Sistine Chapel long enough to comprehend the massive feat that painting it was as well as seeing some conspicuous photo takers being kicked out. From the Vatican it was up the Cupola of St Peters Basilica for a 360 view of Rome from its highest point. The walk up is not for the faint ...
... decide not to look at the Egyptian items as we don't feel it is fair to the Egyptians- especially seeing there are two mummies in there which people are allowed to take photos of. I feel this is so disrespectful to the mummy who was originally buried in their home in egypt to be taken from there and be shown on display for thousands of people to point at and goo and gah at through a glass cabinet. Very sad! Through to the sisteenth chapel- so amazing! Over 300 individual paintings ...
