We got there early and Karen, Hunt, and I moved through quickly. I hate to admit this but there’s too much ‘there’ there for me. The statues, painted walls and ceilings all began to run together.
I did did like the floors!
This is a Sistine floor. I took it right before they said no photos.
Karen and Hunt did not want to go up into the dome at St. Peter’s, so I went by myself.
There is a lift, followed by a whole lot of stairs.
Along with dozens of others. First you are inside, looking down into the Basilica.
Then up more, and to the outside area very near the top. I do love seeing a city from above, outside.
Once down we had an amazing gluten free lunch. I had little round lemony donuts for dessert!
Then we met back up with Hunt’s students and went all over the place. Have I said this was a 9.8 mile day?
Everywhere you look, there seems to be a dome…
…or a fountain. Some are more famous than others. The Trevi Fountain is very famous, as indicated by the crowd.
But wait, there’s more!
And gelato, with crisp and tasty gluten free cones!
There are about 300 more photos but I’ll stop here. Good idea, right? Tomorrow we go out to see other things. I’ll be back.
