After Venice, we headed into Rome. This city has so much history and so many amazing sites to see! Two of our favorite things that we saw here were the Sistine Chapel and the Catacombs (neither of which allowed pictures). But overall, this wasn’t our favorite city on our trip – we thought it was hard to navigate and kind of dirty.
