Arrivederci Roma


View Europe 2014 on Melbinman's travel map.

All good things must come to an end and so we have reached the end of our travels. We spent the last day visiting the Vatican although the crowds were so huge we dipped out on visiting St Peters Basilica. A word of advice, don't visit on a Wednesday when they have the weekly papal audience, the place is packed with pilgrims of all hues and ages! Last time I was here you didn't need to go through a security screen to visit a church, sad state of affairs. We settled for a few pics in the piazza.

We also paid a visit to the lovely piazza Navona where we enjoyed a nice lunch.

We then endured a hair raising taxi ride to the airport where the first driver was unwell and had to pull into the emergency lane of the autostrada, and the second replacement driver thought he was Fangio! The girls were having kittens and B and I needed a stiff drink when we arrived at the airport (thankfully in one piece! ??

Anyway we are currently at Dubai waiting for our connecting flight. Looking forward to getting home to our own beds and hoping we don't get too jet lagged!!?
