Even though we were in Rome our first two days once we arrived in Italy, we were all very excited to return back to the city where our trip began three weeks ago. After a seven hour bus ride from Venice, we all were anticipating returning to this great city. After we finally arrived, we had the rest of the day free to revisit the areas that were our home for two days. We were beginning to remember the places that we enjoyed seeing, and were excited to see our surroundings once again.
On our last day in Rome, we had a very interesting day filled with lots of famous buildings to tour. We first started off with the Vatican, one of the famous buildings filled with lots of rich history. Our tour guide did a great job telling us everything to know about this famous place, and we had lots of opportunities to take pictures of the great sites. After our tour, which lasted approximately an hour and a half, we were then allowed to look at other sites on our own. We had the chance to visit the Sistine Chapel and the St. Peters Cathedral, which was an amazing opportunity. It was so surreal to be able to stand in front of both of these places, and it was an experience we will all never forget.
After viewing all of these site, our trip unfortunately came to a close. We had time during the day to walk around the city one more time before we had to prepare for our departure back to the United States. As a whole, we can agree that we all had a fantastic time and it was a memorable experience that we will never forget. While we are sad to leave one of the greatest and most famous countries in the world, we are all very excited to return back to the place we can officially call home.
