Renaissance Rome.

It's been decided that wandering and eating are our favorite traveling activities.

While it was beautiful to see the Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica, it was also kind of weird. I mean, St. Peter's Basilica is the largest church in the world and is really stunning, but it was paid for almost solely from indulgences (when people pay to get their sins forgiven). It just seems a little strange to me. And the Vatican Museum had so much art it was a little overwhelming- a whole room full of animal statues, an entire room filled with head statues, a room with statues on top of statues. Vatican City was all a bit much, although impressive.

However, wandering around the Jewish Ghetto, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, and delicious pizza places was just wonderful.
