I only spent a weekend in Rome, so I had to pick and choose what I saw. I decided not to go to the Vatican due to time constraints. As I was walking along one of the streets, I saw some police setting up a barricade like maybe a parade was coming, so I decided to hang around and see what happened. Ten minutes later a line of cars drove by and people on the street were waving and cheering – it was The Pope!!!! And if I’d gone to the Vatican that day I would have missed him!
