Today we all went to the Vatican after Italian classes at Torre Di Babele. Our tour guide Valentina took us through all the Vatican museums and showed us the famous paintings, mosaics and sculptures. After walking through the busy museums we finally made our way to the cappella sistina. The guards had us all stand in complete silence while we admired the extraordinary piece of art. Finally, we went to St. Peter's church and Valentina took us through the massive cathedral; we were even able to go see St. Peter's tomb. Seeing the Vatican City with my UC classmates was an amazing experience and we were lucky to be shown around by our favorite tour guide Valentina.
