Rome day 1: From the Vatican to the Colosseum

This was September 16, 2016 – the most hectic day in my two-week trip to Europe. I know each day is equal to roughly 24 hours, but that specific day felt longer than that. I couldn’t include all of my activities in just one blog post because I did so many things that day.

Anyway, enough of the talk. I began the Rome tour by visiting St. Peter’s Basilica and St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican.

More on this tomorrow. See, it was a really long day for me.
