Ape Tour on a day the city of shut down!”

I didn't know it when i booked the tour but it was the day of The Canonization of the Pope. Meaning that most of the sites we were to see were shut down and we couldn't reach them in the Ape Vespa. That being said our tour guide, Fedora and us made the best of it. She showed us as many places as she could on our tour list and added some from the other tours so that we could see more of Rome. It was a great time seeing the city in a different perspective and also being able to go see places off the beaten path, or that involve climbing by foot to higher altitudes. I liked a lot more driving to them:) The day threatening to rain so the top was on, but it was still nice seeing everything and knowing if it did rain we weren't gong to be soaked. 'The show must go on!' Fedora was great, she was very nice and accommodating. We probably enjoyed most just getting to talk with her about her culture and life in Rome. The old Roman cobblestones make for a bumpy ride at times, but we did have seat belts. My husband and i would defiantly do it again.
