Now, let me say, I've thought about where I would travel in Europe if given the chance, since I was like 12. And I really have always wanted to see the things that Rome has to offer. How many people can say they've seen the Coliseum, the Pantheon, VATICAN CITY! Which brings me to my next more-than-excited-excitement: Like any good Catholic, I'm going to get to go to the Vatican! Kinda like our own pilgrimage! (Not quite the Hajj for Muslims, but at least half as important to Catholics, right?)
So to make this even MORE exciting, I've just finished learning even more about this stuff from my Art History class. Exactly how the Pantheon was built, the method of painting (fresco) Michelangelo used to paint the ceiling and altar of the Sistine Chapel. I truly could not be more excited. (And I intend to make Stu read these chapters before we go there so he can get excited with me!)
So... have you been to Rome? Always wanted to go? What should we see while we are there? We are going to go for seven days, so we'd like to get in as much sight-seeing (and Italian food!!!) as we can. Please send us your thoughts if you have them!
