My time in Rome has been amazing. This city has an energy like no other. The people are full of good spirits and intensity which drew me in to their realm of greatness.
I went to the Vatican, saw where The Pope lives, saw St. Peters, the Sistine Chapel, and Michaelangelo's masterpieces. Unfortunately, you can't take pics of the Sistine Chapel or of Michaelangelo's work, but I have some great shots of outside.
I used Green Line Tours to get around Rome. It's a double-decker bus with panoramic views. Tourists may hop-on and hop-off the bus at various stops around the city. There are 10 stops total and it runs from 9am to 6:30 pm daily. The brochure states that the bus runs every 20 minutes but Green Line Tour bus did not. ALL of the other tour buses ran on time so I am not sure why this company had issues. Overall, it's a great service for a great price. Trip advisor only lends 1.5 stars for this company; it could be due to the tardiness or less than enthusiastic bus announcers. I didn't care to listen to the chatter so getting me to all points between A - Z was good enough.
This hotel is absolutely adorable. Excellent customer service. Good size rooms. Complementary wine and breakfast. Close to the Colosseum. Outstanding price.
Greatness from Day 3 coming up next....
As always, more pics are on FB and Instagram.
