Roma Pt 2 - Day 7 European Vaca.

By Elleelizabeth
on our 7th day in europe, my mom and i had a tightly packed schedule. we started off our morning with a reservation at the vatican museum at 10am. i must say, this was not on the top of my list of things i wanted to see while in rome, but it turned out to be my favorite part!
roma pt 2 - day 7 european vaca.we spent over 6 hours walking through the museum. i was overcome by all the intricate detail. without a doubt i took close to 500 pictures while i was there. after spending time in the museum, we made our way over to st. peter's square and the basilica. we attempted to go to the basilica before our 10am reservation but it was closed due to the pope already in the middle of mass outside. once inside the basilica, i again was in my picture glory. the pictures don't even do justice the enormous size and detail of everything. the amount of size alters is uncountable. if you're ever in rome, go to vatican city to visit. it was absolutely breathtaking. and i highly suggest paying extra money to go up to the cupola. from there you can walk up to the top of the dome and get a wonderful view of the city.
