Day 2: The Pantheon | Vatican City | St. Peter's Basilica
After a jam-packed first day, a hideously early start and 13 miles of walking, we gave up on sightseeing at around 6pm and had to head back to our apartment for a little power nap to regain some energy for dinner, so had to skip The Pantheon and decided to head there on Sunday morning instead. The best preserved Ancient Roman Monument which was once a Temple is now used as a Church and it's beauty both inside and out is honestly breathtaking You simply can't visit Rome without a stop-off at The Pantheon and I'm so blimmin' glad we didn't skip it off the itinerary.
Location: Piazza della Rotonda, 00186 Roma, Italy
The Vatican City: St. Peter's Square
Vatican City....the country within a country? I gotta admit it took my little brain a while to understand that I could get in an uber in one country and after just a 10 minute drive I could get out the uber and be in another. What the absolute heck? As a firm atheist, although I couldn't be any less religious if I tried, the Vatican as a whole impressed me greatly and as an avid lover and appreciator of architecture, I was in my absolute element wandering around the beautiful city. I was blown away by the beauty of it all. The Sistine Chapel was unfortunately closed as it was the last Sunday of the month (apparently that's a thing?), so sadly we couldn't explore the chapel, so we wandered around the square and visited St Peter's Basilica instead, which you will see by the photos below was a blimmin' good consolation!
Location: Piazza San Pietro, 00120 Città del Vaticano, Vatican City

P.S. Yes, you can do Rome in a weekend!
