Photo Challenge: Morning

I’ve been to Vatican City twice. Once in the late afternoon, and once in the morning.

I highly recommend the morning. Look, almost no one is here (include the Pope, as it turned out):


St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City

I consider myself a “morning” person, but not always while traveling. However, there are moments that really are worth getting an early start in order to experience.

I wanted to climb to the top of the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica; and I wanted to avoid a long queue – so I was there when they opened and was very happy to have arrived early.

I love how the early day sun is reflecting off of this magnificent church. I hope to return to Rome, and plan to repeat this experience.

Buona giornata!
