We moved on to the Capital Plaza designed by Michaelangelo. Then we moved on to Piazza Venezia & further on to the Vatican then to Castle Sant Angelo.


Statues at sides of stairs leading to Campidoglio e Musei Capitolini.

Note something in the middle of the road with men standing around. These men from Africa had leather & wood items for sale laying on sheets. We looked over the side at the river for a moment & when we turned around, they were GONE.

We went to the bridge to cross. Not until we were on this bridge we saw them with their goods bundled on their backs way ahead of us. We tried to buy some roasted chestnuts from a vendor moving with us & he said "Wait till we move away from the police" & disappeared.

I was told a tunnel goes from Castle Sant Angelo to San Pietro in the Vatican.

I believe this to be an Elementary school Scuole elementari.
