Of course, the museums and the Sistine Chapel (no photos allowed in the Sistine Chapel) are fantastic. As the second-most visited museum in the world (behind the Louvre), booking tickets is recommended, but being guided is an absolute must. There were so many details we would not have been made aware of, otherwise, the rich papal history, the works of art, the stories. Raphael rooms....and so much more.
Laoconnte and his sons. (one of Nicole's favourites)
A roman bath, the biggest one we have seen made from Egytpian Imperial Porphyry.
(these people were on the other side of the bath, not in it!)
Sculpture, Sphere Within Sphere" by Italian Sculptor, Arnaldo Pomodoro.
After this tour, we decided that the best way to see the Colosseum the next day was also on a guided tour, and Rachel helped us to book one for the next morning. With temperatures planned to be in excess of 37 degrees, we decided that the morning tour (with a few areas of shade) would be best.
We headed back to the Metro, caught the train back to the hotel, had dinner in a local restaurant and headed in for the night.
