Vespatour 2006 part 16: Rome

Cappella SistinaStaring at the magnificence of the Sistine Chapel has been among the best moments of the Vespatour, so intense that it’s impossible to describe it with words or pictures .

In particular I wanted to see the “hand of creation” that, stylized by an friend artist, I choose as logo for the blog.

The Sistine Chapel is the last stop of the long visit route inside the Vatican Museums, the apex of the wonders exhibited.
My visit to the Vatican Museums is described in the sixteen photo gallery.

During the three days I spent in Rome I couldn’t miss a romanesque-style evening dedicated to the local cuisine: on august 21, together with Stefano, a Vespa rider from Como who joined me in Rome by train, we went to Ariccia, in the Castelli Romani area. The laughs in good company and the juicy “porchetta scrocchiarella” (pork roast) of the “fraschette” (outdoor inns) were among the silliest things we did until now! 🙂

The stop in Rome couldn’t be complete without a photo in front of the Colosseum, taken by a girl wearing a t-shirt with “Monnalisa” written on it… thanks Monnalisa! 😉

The next stop, on august 23, was going to be the Royal Palace of Caserta.
