A lovely sunny day in Rome today.
We walked to Vatican City.
The Canadians from Florence had warned us about the queues, (which were immense and of no interest to us to join).
Approaching, you are hastled by numerout touts most of whom are clearly not Italian.
We loitered in the square and the walked around the outside of the walls, circumnavigating an entire country. It's quite peaceful for most of it.
Vatican makes the 10th country visited this trip - I probably spent less than a combined 12 hours in Gibraltar, Morocco, San Marino and Vatican!
We walked to the Spanish Steps after lunch (they were closed) and then to the gardens behind, which have a nice view over the city.
