We had only one frantic, jam-packed tourist day in Rome. When visiting the eternal city for only a day, they suggest that you either tour the ancient section (the Forum, Pantheon, Spanish steps, etc) OR the Vatican (St. Peter’s, Sistine Chapel). But we had a small van tour group that wanted to do both, and a driver willing to make it happen.
As you can see, it was a rainy, miserable weather day, very difficult for outdoor photos. And my camera, while very superior to the iPad of the previous trip, did not have a lens with sufficient wide angle capacity to capture tight shots, such as indoors or at Trevi Fountain. But we made the best of it. Apart from discovering that we wasted an hour’s journey just to be told we could not take pictures of the Sistine Chapel, and getting lost trying to find our way back to the van, the day was a huge success. At least the pictures show we ticked off the boxes of Rome’s most famous venues. On our next trip perhaps we can improve on the quality.
