On our free day in Rome we went to the Vatican City in the morning, how crazy is it that the Vatican is considered it’s own country?
After an early start we made it inside the Vatican.
We saw a variety of old vehicles used for the popes, the common theme being there always seemed to be a an area they could sit and be visible to the public.
We explored the gardens, St. Peter’s basilica and we even went to St. Peter’s square where we found the pope was talking!! So unexpectedly we actually saw pope Francis. We wanted to see the tombs of the old popes but there was to many people around since the pope was speaking so unfortunately we missed out on that.
Below is where we were standing when the Pope was speaking.
The walls and ceilings inside the Vatican were incredible, so detailed and elegant.
