|Vatican Museum Piece|
After the Sistine Chapel, we gave the kids a choice to either leave the building then or go back and see other parts of the museum. They wanted to stay and just hang out a little bit longer, so we browsed through the galleries, in the awe!! Almost no one was there - a welcome break from the "throng." We had some fun at the end of our tour by sending post cards from the Vatican with their stamps. It's an interesting reminder that the Vatican is/was a separate country with its own monetary system, postal system and Swiss Guards.
We left the museums and again offered the kids a few choices: 1. Go out for lunch or 2. Buy something for sandwiches to make back at the apt. They chose the later and as we were working out the best way back we stumbled upon this amazing market. We spent about half an hour buying ciabatta, porchetta, tomatoes, fresh cherries and strawberries in season, some cheese and the tiny first leaves of lettuce. There were several hands to carry it all back to the flat where we feasted!!
