My Trip to Italy: The Vatican

The Vatican was stunning. I got the only history lesson I needed being in the Vatican for a few hours. I literally contemplated touring the rest of what Rome has to offer. Our tour and tour guide was awesome. We learned so much from her.

Cody being serious, Matt obviously not. (That is some serious 3M on that Nike jacket)

Lots of statues.

The most amazing room that had a ceiling to die for and that was filled with gorgeous historial tapestries.

These chairs are pretty much permanent now as the new pope speaks to the people regularly. How cool is that?

Up next… more Rome! (And the pictures are more exciting. Trust.)
