ITALY: "Prepare for the emotion!" pt. 2

Second day of touring:





climbing to the top of the cupola (the dome of St. Peter's Basilica) - all 550+ steps





views from the very top of the dome








Michelangelo's Pieta


(word to the wise: If you want to see the Sistine Chapel, you have to go through the Vatican Museums.
Buy your tickets online before you go, it will save you from waiting in line for an hour and a half!)








Gelato!
(we had at least one a day, if not two...)



(half of the front was undergoing renovations. boo.)




and after a ridiculously long day of walking all over Rome, we had a delicious dinner with Cousin John and his wife Debbie
