I went on a short trip with a my friends a couple of years ago to Rome, Italy. We stayed for 3 nights 4 days near Vatican City.
We went to visit the Vatican Museums where they display famous art and sculptures from Italy (around 20,000 on display). The walls and ceilings were beautifully displayed with magnificent paintings and drawings. It was definitely worth the visit!
While we were visiting the Vatican Museums we found a nice vibrant yellow wall so we took this opportunity to have a mini photoshoot session 😀
We had A LOT of pasta and pizza during our stay which were pretty damn good. My favourite dish was definitely the carbonara which I couldn’t get enough of. The spaghetti in Rome was perfectly al dente.
We wanted to visit St. Peter’s Basilica but the queue to get in was insane! It was around a 3 hour wait to get in so we decided to give it a miss (too hot to queue in the middle of the summer). I would recommend buying a ticket in advance online so you can skip the queue.
That’s it for today! Just one more thing I want to tell you about Rome are the the pickpockets and scammers! There were a lot of scammers trying to get you to buy tickets from them. Make sure to buy your tickets from the attraction itself to avoid being scammed. I also recommend carrying your bags in front of you as my friend got her purse stolen within the first hour of being in Rome! Luckily she had some extra cash hidden in her suitcase so it wasn’t a complete disaster. Just make sure your bag is in your sight and you’ll be fine 😀
