ST.PETER's Basilica and square in Rome .......VATICAN CITY


Vatican City is a non-hereditary, elected monarchy that is ruled by the Bishop of Rome — the Pope. The highest state functionaries are all clergymen of the Catholic Church. It is the sovereign territory of the Holy See (Sancta Sedes) and the location of the Apostolic Palace - the Pope's official residence - and of much of the Roman Curia.

For almost 1000 years (324-1309), the Popes lived at the Lateran Palace on the Caelian Hill in the east of Rome. On their return from 68 years in Avignon in 1377 the Lateran building was out of repair, and since then they have lived in the Vatican or, for a while, at the Quirinal, now the residence of the president of Italy. The Lateran Treaty by which the Vatican City State was set up is so called because it was signed in the restored Lateran building, which is now the residence of the Pope's Cardinal Vicar General for the City of Rome. There have been two Vatican Councils, but five Lateran Councils. The Basilica of St. John Lateran, not the St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican, remains the Pope's cathedral. Vatican is one of the most visited places of worship in the world with more than 25 million devotees coming every year.

Hello Pearly, I love Rome?
Hey, did anyone pinch your bum? Italian men there are noted for pinching women's bums, ha ha.
Those are beautiful pictures of you, Pearly.
The last time I was in Rome and Venice was in 1964, ha ha.
I remember I climbed up the Vatican, right to the top, scratched my name there, 'Lee was here, '64'. Ha ha.
How was the food? I love the outdoor cafes there, sit, drink your expresso and watch people go by.
Italians are THE BEST for fashions, car designs and I love their men's suits and jackets.
Infact I only last year bought an Italian jacket, really beautiful too, the design.
Anyway, glad you had a wonderful time in Roma.
You threw any coins at Fontana De Trevi? UL.

Hi Pearly,
A very nice look at Vatican city. It's one of those places that you have to see at least once.
Yes, you do look very cute ;), and with lovely weather, too.
