Anyway back to Rome. And when in Rome you take a day and first stop of course is the Vatican. We didn't take the tour, because we wanted to "rome" around and I don't think we went five minutes without snapping a pic of something. There is not one block in the city that doesn't have something to stop and look at. Everything had some sense of history and the feeling that you had just stepped back in time. It was surreal at times. And this was just roaming around the city. There are way too many pictures for me to post, (thank you Vincent for handling picture taking duty for most of that day) and I'm not sure these ones are even all my favorites, truthfully I have just picked random ones to give you an idea of what it was like to explore the city with no itinerary, just walking around to see what there was to see. We weren't disappointed.
