We only have 10 minutes for this blog so sorry if it is so short. We woke up this morning and took the metro near the Vatican City, where we paid for our tour so we could skip the lines. Luckily it is Tuesday, so everyone went yesterday to see the sights. The Vatican was very cool...a lot of paintings and carvings from michelangelo and raphael, there was some phenomenal paintings. We took our 4 hour tour of Vatican City and saw the sistine chapel. We took some hip fire shots so when we are able to upload our photos, you all will be able to see it. It was very cool. Our tour guide was a P.H.D in archeology, so it was very good, she spoke english and it made it very pleasurable. After the tour we came back and took a little nap...much neeeded. Then we went to our favorite restaurant in Italy...L'antica Taverna....right next to our hostel and the train station...we got free wine and desert...Awesome!!! so now we're just updating a brief blog, tomorrow...we will head to the port of ostia and the beach for a much needed relaxation day...we'll let you all know how the beaches of Italy are tomorrow in our blog. til tomorrow!! ciao!
