The Vatican and Rome

Rome Rome Rome Rome Rome Rome RomeOn my recent trip to Rome, I needed to take the family by the Vatican area. It was hugely crowded, and long lines, even for the museum. As we are not into museums, we quickly took a tour of the place and head elsewhere.

However, the place is huge and magnetic, many pilgrimages do come, from many countries. The via della conciliazione is great leading from St Peter’s to the Castel San Angelo and its bridge over the center of Rome.

The bus 62 takes you all the way to the castel and if you are in Termini train station take bus 40 to the Vatican. 1,50€ one way per person no need for tours.

Walk the historical areas is our pastime so we did enjoy walking and seeing all the wonderful architecture and into the smaller streets to see the local life.

I leave  you with some pictures of it, hope you enjoy it, and do pay a visit even outside is wonderful.

ps I have moved into my new house; many things to do now lol!!!
