Wait, where is the Sistine Chapel??
Good morning!! We woke up bright and early at 5:30am to catch the bus to Vatican City. We got there around 6am and there were only like 30 people in line for St. Peter's Basilica so we got in line and went inside. It was so beautiful!
Then we walked in all different directions searching for the Vatican Museum because there was no map. That took about 20 min but we eventually found it and got in line around 8:15am. The line was HUGEEEEEEEE. No joke, the longest line of my life. It was horrible.
We waited for about an hour and a half and finally got in! There were soooooooooo many people. We walked through, saw the Sistine Chapel, lots of Raphael and Michelangelo and were surprised how small the Sistine Chapel actually is... After all the hype we thought it'd be bigger... But, it was still very cool to see!
When we came out, the line for St. Peter's was massive.
This is when we got there at 6:30 am
And this is a couple hours later at about 11 am
We couldn't believe all the people, by 10 am all of Vatican City was packed!
We went home and took a three hour nap. It was amazing and much needed. Then we got up, walked down to the Trevi Fountain and threw a coin in and made a wish!!
We just ate dinner and are now hanigng out using the small amount of wifi there is.
We made some friends who just came from Tours, France where we will be in about a week so we exchanged tips and sent them to the restaurant where we just ate. The little Internet room at our hostel is quite busy with people from all over the world.
Tomorrow we are headed to see more fountains, churches, the Spanish steps and the Roman Forum! Since we've mastered the bus system we might give our poor feet a little rest.
