We traveled around these Italian places by train. -------------ROME is the Capital City, it is in the Lazio region. We stayed in a Budget hotel in the city centre,. The main attractions are easily accesable -------------------VATICAN CITY . Headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church. .St, Peters Church is one of the worlds largest churches., takes up half of one of the worlds smallest States.--------------------PISA
