thoughts and things

When in Rome……

Do have a pizza. They’re delicious.

Don’t pay priority tickets for the sistene chapel. They cost a bit more and don’t actually seem to get you priority into anywhere…..

Do go to the Vatican, St. Peter’s square is free to enter and so is St. Peter’s Basillica. It’s lovely actually. (I liked it better than the Vatican museums)

Do go and see the sistene chapel but be warned you will feel like a cow being herded and blink and you’ll miss the actual ceiling. And don’t take pictures coz they shout at you.

(Oh and the Sistine chapel is round the corner from St.Peters Square, in case you can’t find it.)

Do go and have a drink on the square outside of the Pantheon, great atmosphere especially early evening. It’s free to go inside the Pantheon and it’s amazing too.

Do Walk. All you have to do is walk around, and you’ll find something amazing.

Do be aware the Trevi fountain is a bit under construction at the minute…..

Don’t get harassed by a man in roman costume and let him take all your change.

Do put your hand in the Mouth of Truth and see if it bites your hand off.

All in all Rome is a lovely place to go.

Have you been to Rome? What would you recommend?
