Italy Day 6

This was one of Brad's favorite days! As soon as we decided to go to Italy, I requested tickets for the New Year's Day Mass. We are not Catholic, but I knew that it would be a neat experience. And Brad would get to see the pope! The service started at 10, so we got there at 8 so we could get in line and try to get a good seat. This was St. Peter's Square (notice the lack of people).

The view from our seats! We got to sit directly on the aisle.
The pope leaving mass.
We spent the rest of the day visiting different churches. I would guess that we saw 15 churches. It was amazing how ornate they all were.

What a great trip. Europe has so much to see. I remember my trip to London and Paris like it was yesterday. I can't wait to go back.
