It was pretty amazing to walk down the street and just be engulfed in history. Amazing to look on one side of the road and see actual ruins, while on the other side, a team is digging up new artifacts. The Sistine Chapel was a bit of a let down for me, probably due to having an idea in my head as a small child of it being some monstrous room with a giant ceiling. However, the Basilica of St Peter did not disappoint. I was in complete awe the whole time I was inside. The highlight for me was the Colosseum. We took a night tour and were fortunate enough to be all alone inside for a good 20 minutes. Incredible to know all that had taken place right where we were standing.
