We're not sure how much information we all retained, but it was a beautiful day and very entertaining at times. As our guide explained, it would take more than two lifetimes to see all Rome has to offer. So, there is no point letting your holiday and relationships become ruined just because you haven't ticked everything off your list. How true!
After another 10 euros taxi ride home, we rested briefly before racing back to St Peter's to climb the over 500 steps to the Cupola ( Dome). Here, we had the most amazing view over Rome. As we reached the bottom again, Mass was just beginning in St Peter's Basilica. We decided to attend mass, which was very special, as it was also accompanied by their children's choir.
