I am so glad that my youngest daughter booked a guided tour of the Vatican City… else I would be lost in this small nation.
The most powerful and respected man on earth resides in Vatican City, i.e, the Pope, he has millions of followers where he is elected democratically and can be born in any country in the world!
Below are my earlier reports on my Europe Trip 2019:

We took the public bus to Vatican City where it only cost EUR1.50 per person one way.
The tour of the Vatican City starts at the Museum Entrance and ends at St. Peter’s Square.
We reached the Museum Entrance before 8am and there was already a long queue. My youngest daughter booked the tour via Vatican City Official Online Website.
There are thousands and thousands of treasures in the Vatican Museum, above are just a small portion of what are on display.
The Sistine Chapel is where the Pope is secretly voted by the Cardinals and also where many of Michelangelo’s years of hard work are permanently shown to humanity.
St. Peter’s Basilica
The largest Church on earth which is also the resting place of Peter whom Jesus said will be given The Keys To The Kingdom God.
Above is the symbolic Throne of The Pope. Now you guys know where Games Of Thrones people copied the Iron Throne from.
As I mentioned from the start, the tours ends at St. Peter’s Square. Below is once again a photo of the square.
Osteria Padi Restaurant
After the tour, it was close to 12pm and we were all hungry. So I googled and found a restaurant nearby called Osteria Pade which had very good reviews.
I tell you, God is really good to me because right in front to the left of the restaurant was the Bus Stop No.64, the bus that will take us back to the front door of our hotel.
The more than 3 hours tour of the Vatican City has worn us out. So we rested in our cool hotel room until it was time for dinner.
It was the last night for us in Rome. So I decided that we should try out CiPasso which is ranked No.3 best restaurant in entire Room. This place does not accept reservations, so we headed there early and reached just before 6.30pm. We only had to wait 10 minutes and were seated. I tell you, it is best you go to any of the highly ranked restaurants early else you will need to wait.
The Most Beautiful Girl In Rome
Below is a photo of the hostess at CIPASSO, the most beautiful girl I have seen in entire Rome 🙂
After dinner we decided to head to Trevi Fountain to check in out again.
