Visit to the Vatican

Today we visited the Vatican.

We hired a guide in a small group which allowed us to skip the lines to get in and really get a great insight into some of the artwork.

One could spend a lifetime just looking at the collections of art. In our short 4 hours we only saw a very tiny fraction of what there is to see.

Over 25 thousand people a day visit so it was quite crowded. We arrived early however and at first had St Peters Square almost to ourselves. By the end of the tour it was another story.

Tomorrow we are off to Sorrento (south of Naples) for a few days and a visit to Pomeii.

See you there.
