Well, Rome is indeed a really neat place, although I am sure you have heard/ or experienced already. OH my gosh how beautiful the colosium was up close and personal, obviously..while my friends and I were there, there was a married couple getting their pictures taken outside of it!! Well that's enough about that... over the summer it was a scorcher! The worst was when we were waiting outside of the line to enter the vatican museum ..f-ing hot! If you decide to wait in that line you must get there several hours early before it opens so that you dont have to be backed up too far! plus the longer you wait the hotter it gets in the later part of the afternoon. Now, don't get me wrong I do love all the roman art, sculptures, and paintings, as well as the religious symbols in the vatican.. but the Sistine Chapel..not gonna lie.. I wasn't that impressed! I mean you weave through the museum for what seems like forever and then you go in this room where its packed of people and you look at the ceiling and you're supposed to be amazed by this art that michangelo created.. well I wasn't..but hey that's just me? maybe it was due to all the heat and waiting in line?.. BUT what i really really enjoyed seeing ..which was just gorgeous in the vatican was St. Peter's Basilica!!! oh wow, now that is something to see!! Now, I was in Rome on my 19th birthday this summer ahh it was awesome.. my friends and I went to a store and bought a half gallon of absolut and took it to the "Spanish Steps" where we were allowed to openly drink like many other teenagers/ young adults were doing! Police officers didn't care a bit.. Around the spanish steps was very entertaining..they had street venders trying to sell pointless crap, and lots of high-end stores for ex. gucci and that stuff..then they had lots of fabulous little restaurants! At night many times you can meet up with groups to participate in "pub crawls" or go to some of the other popular clubs! Rome was just a glorious city...everything is verry spread out though, prepared to do some walking or take the metro or whatever they call it :) I advise you to go there!
