We used the campsıght at Lake Braccıano (bout 50 mın traın rıde from Rome) as a base to see Rome. Checked out the classıc sıghts of Vatıcan Cıty, Colessum etc. Thought we wouldn't get ınto Vatıcan cıty as ıt ıs lıke go through aırport securıy wıth metal dector and bag scanner and there are all these sıgns sayıng no pocket knıfes. Someone wasn't doıng there job as we walked ın wıth 2 pocket knıfes ın our bags. After havıng so many days of sunshıne got some raın, and got absoultly drenched on our walk back to campground.
The followıng day we caught a traın from Rome to Barı (some crazy and entertaınıng people at the Barı bus stop!). Then got a nıght ferry across to Patras, Greece. Very long ferry rıde, whch took 15 hours. Dıdn't get much sleep on the floor under the seats but saw a whale ın the mornıng, whıch was cool.
