During our stay in Rome we also visited the Vatican. It was on our third day in Rome. It was monday morning a day after the pope's birthday. When we arrived on the square in front of the St. Peters Cathedral there were a lot of chairs and gates and extra special security.

So what was happening? We haven't really figured out exactly, but by the time we could get into the cathedral it was around 1400. We were quite angry because we had to wait a long time and nothing was clear. They told us and many others the church would be open in 15 minutes over and over again.

Of course that happened after we visited the Vatican Museums. So eventually we had to wait for over an hour to get into the church, but it was worth the wait!
