Europe Travel Vatican

Exploring Europe: Vatican City

It’s been more than a year since my family and I went to Europe for a two-week cross-country adventure. My Eurotrip photos should’ve been uploaded sooner, but my Macbook Air’s SSD got corrupted the very next day I was done post-processing my Italy and Switzerland photos. Imagine waking up the next day, turning on your laptop and see a missing folder icon blinking on the screen. It was so heartbreaking, and I still get sad thinking about it. Fortunately, I’ve managed to capture some photos on my iPhone. I also got Europe plans with my boyfriend next year and we plan to visit all of these places together! :)

Anyway, we visited the Vatican City on a Wednesday to catch the regular Papal Mass. As expected, the square was filled with tourists all over the place. With the volume of visitors, my family and I decided to join a group tour on the spot. A Filipino guy whom we met at the Square recommended we join When In Rome’s Vatican group tour. While I encourage DIY tours, it does entail a lot of early planning — a luxury we didn’t have as our trip was very last minute. We received our visa 3 days prior to our trip, and my mom didn’t want to make any bookings for the fear of getting denied (this is their first visa application that got approved).

The photos below are what I was able to capture throughout the tour, except for the Sistine Chapel. You’re not allowed to take pictures inside the famous chapel.

    Love your photos! I’m planning a trip next month to Italy. Do you think one day in Vatican city is enough? Thanks :)

      I hope my comment isn’t too late? One day in Vatican is enough, but it’s going to be hell lot crazy – especially if there’s too many people visiting.
