Hello from Rome!

We are on our first family holiday to Europe & arrived in Rome yesterday. This morning we did a tour of the Vatican and I couldn't wait to share some of my pics. The craftsmanship of the building & artworks was just amazing.

16th Century tapestry

The tapestries were huge and all hand-woven using cottons, silks and wools. They were amazing.

I have more to share, including marble floors and mosaics, but am having a few issues with blogger so will post them later.

Cheers,
Tracy

Hello Tracy! Lovely photographs! I have never been to Rome.... I should make the time to have a visit.... not so far for me from the UK as it is for you travelling all that way to Europe! Hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday! Happy Easter! :)
