St. Peter's Bascillica

On our last day, we got up early and headed toward Vatican City.  We were under a time crunch...public transportation was going on strike.  (I swear no one is going to want to go on vacation with me ever again.)  We went to St. Peter's Bascillica first.  It was early and quiet and I SO recommend getting there by 8:30 am.  WE spent so much time in St. Peter's that by the time we made it to the Vatican Museum it was going to take two hours to get through line.  That would have put us at getting in at 12:15 and for 15 euros each, with no picture taking allowed of the Sistene Chapel, knowing that there was NO public transportation, and our train was to leave at 1:30...we walked away.  I am embarrassed to say that we made it all the way to Rome and missed the Chapel.  With that said, please enjoy the pictures of our final day in Rome.
