First we learnt how to drink water out of a traditional Roman fountain then we skipped a line of 500 people waiting while we went to a special entrance. Our Guide's name was Rachel and she showed us around the Vatican City which is another country but we did not need our passports! Rachel explained some of the differences between Greek and Roman sculptures, the Greek sculptures were often nude and idealised face while the Roman sculptures where more realistic and clothed. The tapestries were huge and made out of silk and wool. Before we reached the Sistine Chapel we saw many works from Raphael then we entered the Sistine Chapel, it was amazing! Michael Angelo worked for 4 years on the ceiling and insisted on working alone.
After we left the Sistine Chapel we went to St Pauls cathedral, it was gigantic and full of paintings and statues of 'horses' . We saw people praying and popeing! We have been very lucky with the weather and again today we had beautiful sunshine so we went to a famous fountain to get a few souverniers. We saw lots of street performers it was very busy and the Piazza was full of life!
In the evening we went out for our final dinner in a local Italian restaurant. As an extra treat we had a performance from a guitarist and singer, she was very loud but had a great voice. She sang 3 little birds from Bob Marley and somewhere over the rainbow as well as lots of Italian songs too. Now we have to go and pack; Hania, Malak and the horsies.
