Started at the Vatican museum. Got there at 9:15 and stayed until 3:30. Saw all the great artists. Michaelangelos , Leonardos and Raphaels. What a wonderful day. Spent almost an hour
in the Sistine Chapel.

Arrived in Rome Sunday morning @ 9:06. The flight actually was comfortable but I didn't get much sleep. The car picked us up and drove us to the apartment. After settling in we headed to the Piazza Navona to have a quick look around and have lunch.
