Early the next morning, we got back on the coach bus for another three hours to travel from Sorrento to Rome. After a long morning on the bus, we quickly checked into our hotel and then had some free time to get lunch before meeting up for our tour of the Vatican. I had a delicious cappuccino and a bowl of carbonara pasta for lunch, which was probably the best pasta I had all trip. That afternoon, we were guided around Vatican City, seeing St. Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, and the various Vatican Museums. Everything was so ornate and gorgeous, but hard to see and take in just in one afternoon. That evening, we were all really tired from walking around the Vatican for many hours; however, we had one of our best meals that night (in my opinion). We went to a local pizza restaurant, where they served us three different types of Neapolitan pizza––margherita, gorgonzola, mushroom and ham, and spicy salami. They were all so flavorful and fresh. That night, we walked to the Trevi Fountain, and despite being extremely crowded, it was still really pretty and a sight you can’t miss when in Rome.
