By the time our night tour of the Vatican had ended, it was pretty late. The city was quiet and there was a very light rain falling. We took a train back over to our side of the city. We hopped out near the Coliseum. We wanted to make sure that we saw it at night - and there were gelato places still open! We had gelato everyday at least once (and sometimes more than once!). It is a treat we loved from Lygon Street in Melbourne - so very eager to taste the truly real deal! It did not disappoint. We did manage to get pictures of everytime we ate it, but most were taken on the phone, so not easy to add right here. I would have loved to remember all the flavors we ate - so many! But the bustle, the walking, the heat and just enjoying the moments won out.....

If you are in Rome in the summer and wish to tour the Vatican - doing a night tour is something I would highly recommend. Rome can be really crowded and pretty warm! Touring the Vatican in the evening cuts down on both of these.
This sculpture is called Sfera con Sfera or Sphere within a Sphere. There are a series of them located around the world. One is also at the Christian Theological Seminary in Indy - right down the road from us. I would love run over there and take a picture of that one!
Just down under the canopies is where we had our pizza that night!
Vatican City is located near the center of Rome - from here we could see over toward the Forums - the Vittoriano is especially easy to see.

It was a chilly and rainy day to arrive in Rome. It took a bit of time to get our rental car as we were really hard pressed to find ANY car that would fit all 3 of us and our bags. Good thing we have manual drivers! We checked in to an adorable bed and breakfast just down from the Coliseum.
