It had scaffolding in a small area because of restoration work. I really liked it. Then we went to the Vatican. We went through the Vatican museum which led to the Sistine Chapel.

It has been a remarkable trip -- the trip of a lifetime really. Many thanks to those who gave us advice and joined us on our blog.
And now there's only one thing left to say -- Arrivederci Italia!
