CITTA DEL VATICANO, ROMA


Spent the day in the Citta del Vaticano in Rome with friends.  The weather was really nice and it was just as awesome as ever.  We love Rome, it offers so much to do and so much to see.

We (three women) spent time shopping on the Via Cola di Rienzo.  We love this area to shop as it is away from the tourist area and offers such a wide variety of shopping, with prices are pretty reasonable.

We did a little shopping on the Via Veneto then visited the office of someone we know to meet up to have lunch together.

I can’t tell you what fun it is to drive around Rome with a friend in her little car yelling at other drivers and zipping along.  The ability of the drivers is astounding considering all the scooters buzzing alongside.

 

We visited the crypts under the Vatican and again the crowds near Pope John Paul II  is something to see.  On May 1st, he will be beatified here in Rome with over 2 million people expected to attend.  We could see the preparations already being made.

 

 

I have to run as today is Ash Wednesday and we are now going to San Francesco d’Assisi for our ashes.
