July 20: Vatican City, Colosseum, Roman Forum

We had an early start today because we were visiting Vatican City. Our tour included Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. We had an excellent guide and she made it a very worthwhile visit, even though we have been to these places before.

After lunch we headed to the Colosseum. It was very hot and humid and we were still a bit jet lagged but enjoyed the tour, even though we did our best to stay out of the sun as much as we could. The water fountains throughout Rome were much appreciated, it was so great to be able to refill our water bottles as we walked.

Our last stop in the tour was the ancient Roman Forum. We took a walk through and stopped for photos but we were both dreaming of gelato as we strolled through the ancient ruins.
