Day Four in Rome

Leave a comment Standard

Yesterday, we went back up to the Park Borghese via the Veneto and rented a Rició 3 person 4 wheel bike.  I saw them the first time we went to the park and wanted to get one and ride it around.

My dad and I on the Rició in Park Borghese.  You pedal and the electric motor kicks in.  I had to do this bike ride as soon as I saw it on our first day in Rome.

Then we went to lunch in La Casina the nice little restaurant in the middle of the park.

From the Park we walked down to Piazza Popolo and then down the Rizone to the Vatican Museum to see the Sistine Chapel.  We got our audio guides wtih our prepaid tickets and  decided to just walk the halls and look at all the rooms then climb down the stairs to the Sistine Chapel.  NO CAMERAS allowed in the chapel, so no photos.  But it is everything the guides, books and photos I have seen say it is.
