... We saw the second biggest cathedral, St Paul in London, and now were standing in the biggest catholic church in the world. It really is something that is worth the money and time to get in.
Talking about money, with an average of 25,000 visitors a day, at minimum of 20 Euro per ticket, the vatican is making 500,000 Euro a day just from ticket sales, this comes to a tidy 182,000,000 Euro over a year. Combine that with offerings ...
... absolutely took my breath away! In no way was I expecting these ruins to be so in tact, and so easy to imagine what they must have been in their glory days, 2.5 thousand years ago!!! The area is massive, and we didn't get to cover it all today, as there was a bit of a drama with our accommodation.

Then, we entered the basilica. This was the second profound moment I experienced today. Words cannot describe walking into St. Peter's for the ...
... and someone still came in, had to literally reach over top of me to get into her purse. Apparently, train thieves are very common, especially on overnight trains. I was lucky to not have anything taken. Including my Ipod, which was right next to my head. It was definitely one of the rougher days of travel I have had on the trip. Florence was another amazing city. It is the art capital of Italy and has more art museums than almost anywhere else in ...
