To the Glory of God

And so to our first full day in Rome.

But first breakfast! The breakfast room had fabulous views, enhanced by the bright blue sky (or grey in these pics ;) )



We headed out into Rome with our destination being the Vatican....







We reached it by crossing the Ponte San Angelo








And on to the Vatican

As you would expect St Peter's was packed but we had an Omnia card and jumped the queues



The Vatican Museums and Sistine chapel are amazing but the volume of people really do make it hard to appreciate.







Back into town


.... pausing for the obligatory ice cream.....

The Piazza Navona, a happening place.....





The Pantheon was once a Roman Temple

The statue (pic #7) works better in b&w than colour.. brings out the detail... and the two people on the bridge (#12) - you can 'feel' the conversation... b&w really concentrates on them as the focal point.
