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.
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.
This is Frederick and today we went to the Papal Audience in St. Peter’s Square. My mom took lots of great photos that I will post soon. But here is one of Fred Hollywood getting ready to see the Pope.
I am now in Firenze (Florence) and my room has 18 foot ceilings with paintings and frescos and the walls are the same. More photos tomorrow. My Mom went to school in Firenze to study Italian after high school. We are going to dinner near her school. She is showing off her Italian everyday and its pretty good.
