It might be the smallest country, but itâ€™s full of art!
I wanted to see as much as possible; therefore I woke up early and left the hostel really really early. I might have been in a hurry, but didn't forget not to wear shorts and wear some kind of sleeves, so I'd be able to go into the churches. I took the bus and arrived to
I went into the
Suddenly he was back and asked me if I'd like to go up to the inner part of the dome. How cool! So, we took the elevator, which was just for workers jejeje. He even let me go into a part not open to the people he just opened the gate, hehehe. The view from the top is amazing. You can see the whole church, which was getting full of people by this time.
But I wanted to get a view of the city. Well, it wasn't a problem, the elevator left me in the middle of the way, hahaha. I just had to climb some stairs. Awesome!!! The view of the city, beautiful

I remember I read that if you canâ€™t arrive really early to the Vatican Museums, you have to go around 1-2pm, when the lines are shorter. So, I decided to go to the Termini, book the train for the day after and get something to eat. I was back by 2pm and the line was short, hahaha. Also I could get even faster because I was just by my own.
It doesnâ€™t matter how long you have to wait for it. The Vatican Museums are WONDERFUL!!! Seeing in front of me all the art I have seen in books and in internet is amazing! There are no words to describe it! The museum is huge, so picked up the rooms I wanted to visit the most. I wouldn't have enough time to visit all of it.
The Museum closed at 6:30pm, so it was time for me to go back to the hostel. While I was walking back I saw 3 girls who seemed to be lost. They had heavy backpacks, so I was sure they were backpackers. I started to talk to them and so funny, they were looking for my hostel, hahaha. So I became their guide and the 4 of us arrived to the hostel :)
