Topdeck Day 15 & 16

Hey Gang

Day 15 was our free day in Rome, the day started with a visit to the Vadican, we were bth very impressed by the Vadican, we got a walking tour with an Irish bloke named Jimmy who was very helpful in letting us know the random facts... like some pannels of the roof of the Cistine Chappel only took Michaelangelo 4 hours to do, where as others took him months! We then had lunch (Pizza... so tasty) We then took our time to wander around Rome, the highlight for me was definately going inside the Coliseum, that place is just beautiful! Top Tip if you are ever going, go to the Roman Foum first and buy a double pass to both, you will then by-pass the MASSIVE line when you want to go inside the Coliseum....

Day 16 was a travel day to Venice, however the travel was stopped on the way with a trip to Verona and we got to see Juliettes balcony. Verona is a very beautiful city, and eve thought the Balcony was built in the 19th century... i stilled loved seeing it!
