7.09.2007 Vatican City

We took the metro to Vatican City and stood in line for about an hour to get in. It was the longest and biggest line we have ever seen. It was probably 10 feet wide and half a mile long! Luckily it was just a security check line, and moved pretty fast.

Once we got in, we saw a bunch of Roman statues and listened about them on our audio guides. There are about 20 museums in Vatican City, and we were not able to see all of them. The three coolest things we saw were probably the Hall of Maps, the Raphael Rooms, and the Sistine Chapel.

We saw St. Peter’s Basilica afterwards, which was enormous and spectacular. It was a long day, and we went home to blog, eat, and drink. We decided to go out to an Irish pub at night. They advertised live Irish music which started at 10pm. We arrived at 12:15, and they said the music had stopped. We asked them what time it stopped, and they said it stopped….3 weeks ago…(???) We ended up going to another Irish pub where there were a bunch of 14-16 year old kids drinking Guiness.
