Date: Wed 26th June
Highlight: Michelangelo’s Moses
Today’s itinerary was a mash up of 3 days worth of previously planned itineraries where we missed landmarks primarily due to getting lost along the way. The days itinerary had us circumnavigate the entire old city of Rome and also included all the main landmarks with some of them getting a second visit such as the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain.
The day brought lots of sights and was also the first full day in which we didn’t get lost! We visited a number of Rome’s churches including one that houses one of Michelangelo’s masterpieces “Moses”. This same church also houses an ancient christian relic of the chains that held saint Peter during his captivity and before his miraculous release.
The day was finished off with some last minute shopping and then Pizza and Pasta for dinner.
This marks our last full day before returning home tomorrow. It’s so hard to believe we have been away from home for 8 weeks. This will be one of our final blogs for this trip, but stay tuned as we intend to do a wrap up post soon after we arrive home.
