The first stop on our drive around Rome was the Vatican.
Almost an overwhelming number of people, but our driver took us to a less-used entrance to St. Peter's Square. We were told the line into St. Peter's Basilica was so long that almost half the people in line might not make it in before everything closed that night.

If you look very carefully at the right background you can see the line to get in.
Wilson guarding a fountain. Does he look like a Vatican Guard?

St. Peter's Basilica, a traditional view
Another view of the fountain, no Wilson but better lighting.

A very nice upscale tourist shop and art gallery
