Our schedule is quite busy for today so we had to decline a visit with Papa Francesco at the Vatican, but we did send our €88 towards the church to get a line up free tickets to see the Vatican Museum. The moment we got off the bus we were happy that we got the advanced tickets. We walked past what seemed to be a 1 km line up. We walked right up to the cashier to get our vouchers, our audio guides and we simply just got in. It was unbearably hot and humid today and I honestly don’t understand why anyone would simply not spent the extra €4.00 per ticket to save themselves at least 2 or 3 hours of waiting in the sweltering heat. We have been to the Louvre a couple of times and to other famous museums in London and Paris, so we were prepared for the splendour of unimaginable proportions – and then we were surprised even more. While it may be good to be a prince or a king or even an emperor – it certainly always is better to be the Pope!
