Two Countries in One

Today was a packed day. We went to the Museo Borghese. Even though Martin and I did not look at all the work in detail, it still took us an hour and half to walk through the gallery. Afterwards, we had a nice venture through the Gardens of Borghese. Under some trees offering shade, we had a break for lunch.

Then to the Vatican City we went. I think Vatican City does a poor job at directing where we can purchase tickets. We ended up walking around half of the city looking for an entrance. In the end, we just went to St. Peter's Basilica. Martin wanted to go to the Cupola San Pietro, the top of St. Peter's Basilica. The path was super strange with all the spirals and curves; it was long hike but well worth the view.

Of course, I spotted the souvenir shop on the way down for the top. Martin and I mailed some post cards from the Vatican City.
