Our first trip to the Vatican was a massive fail. Not only did we miss the Pope’s blessing, we do like a lie in. But Sunday is not the day to visit the centre of the Catholic Church, everything is closed. Not really surprising. Just as well really as my outfit was not Vatican appropriate either, no uncovered shoulders or shorts people.
We had time for a second visit so all was not lost. We had taken a taxi straight there as our hotel was a bit of a trek away. The approach to the Vatican is simply stunning, St Peter’s is such a beautiful building. Even if we couldn’t go in, on such a beautiful day it wasn’t so bad to just wander around in the sun for a little while.
