Well its our last day in Rome and we have a busy itinerary. Robyn spent the time before breakfast putting together a route for the day which lasted precisely until we left the room.

... included a flat roof painted to look vaulted (I tried but really couldn't tell it was flat!); and a tapestry where Christ's eyes/body follow you as you walk by. We finished with a visit to the Sistine Chapel. Now I've heard some people say this famous attraction "ain't all that". Well they're wrong.
