Rome Vatican City

When we arrived at the Vatican we were unpleasantly surprised by a huge line, that went like an hour long. Around us they were families and children running inpatiently all over the place, while adults were complaining about the heat. Nevertheless, we decided to visit the top of the building and see the interior. We bought tickets at the entrance (7e each), took the elevator until a point and then climbed the stairs. If you suffer from claustrophobia never take the stairs! It is a very a painful thing to do as you have to pass through an extremely clautrophobic corridor (clearly seen in the video above), in order to reach the top of the building. At the end of the hallway there is a small door and then there it is, a spectacular view, Rome at your feet! The view was somewhat tainted by our overenthusiasm, as we literally felt like we were up in the sky with invisible clouds surrounding us! On our way back we had to go through another narrow corridor (same as the one we climbed before) and eventually reached the entrance leading us to the inside of the building. The interior was filled with majestic wall art and ancient design columns. There was a silent, peaceful energy in the atmosphere and people was simply enchanted by the exhibits. Fatigued and eager to eat we got the Metro and headed back to Termini Station to eat something in the nearby restaurants. We treated ourselves with refreshing beverages, panini and fish and all we were left with was the sweet view of Rome printed on our memory.

Love,
Anastasia
