Hey, there!!

Well, I spent my xmas in Rome last year. We went to dine somewhere close to the Vatican and then we went to watch the mass at Vatican's church (Saint Peter). I think, even if you're not catholic, it's worthwhile to check this out....

I stayed at a place quite cheap, but I can't remember neither the name nor the address now.... I'll try to check in my diary and tell u later, ok?

thanks there, michellemm.. yeah im not really too religeous, but i think it would be very cool to check out St Peter's square.. the masses of people.. and of course pigeons!

so.. was Rome still very lively.. ie: bars, restaurants, shops..?

thanks for looking up the place you stayed at..

cheerio;) mikey..

Hi i suggest you to spend your time till 6 january

Lazio-Roma - 06-01-05 15:00 - Olimpico

That's could be the best match that you can see in Italy it's really a great experience

Also you can see: Roma-Parma - 19-12-04 15:00 - Olimpico

but it's not the same thing....

Have a nice time in Rome and you can just walk around it's really beatiful all in the center.
