So we had a recap day today for Karen’s sake. We headed back to some of the same spots so she could see them as well. We actually got to go into the San Giovanni museum this time though because our tickets to the Vatican museum worked for this museum as well. It was pretty interesting- we got a tour from a very animated Italian woman whose accent I loved. The museum was actually where the popes used to live. It was definitely neat to see. We got to go through their living quarters and receiving rooms. We got to see a lot of the clothing they got to wear and what their guards wore throughout that time period.
We ventured over across the city and stopped at a few more churches: Santa Gregorio Magno and Santi Giovanni e Paulo. We were heading to see an ancient stone pyramid but it proved to be pretty disappointing.
Oh and by the way, Rome is still pretty dirty; it’s not just by our hostel. It’s pretty around the big important landmarks, but on every other road, it’s not that nicely kept. Maybe Paris is just exceptional, but this place is kind of gross.
