We are finally all tucked into bed after about 36 hours of nonstop traveling and sight seeing... And it has been a blast. We had two uneventful flights, one short and one long bus ride, attended one mass in St. Peter's Basilica, saw one Pope with 105,000 other people in the piazza, had two delicious Italian meals, enjoyed many cappucino and gelati and are happily exhausted. 

We are looking forward to our day in Pisa and Florence tomorrow along with the thrill of our first concert of the trip! 


  1. Yay!!! I'm so glad you made it safe and sound ... and that the pope made an appearance! I can't wait to see where you go next :-)

  2. Awesome! We are so glad that the trip is going well. Thank you to all of the chaperones for taking great care of the girls and giving up your break to provide them with this opportunity. Thank you also for taking the time to update us with this blog.

  3. This has been wonderful keeping up with the blog. I was part of the group who traveled to Rome in 2000. It was the most incredible experience and am so happy you were able to go an experience the same!
