Today we found our inner tourist, or, as our tour guide Professor Linda Nolan suggested, our inner happy place, and ventured through the Vatican Museum and Saint Peter’s Basilica. We were able to see the beautiful art while learning the history of the works and the meaning behind certain pieces. A bucket-list item for many!
We made our way to Accent following the Vatican tour to speak with Valerie Piccioni, an award-winning sports journalist for La Gazette dello Sport. Piccioni discussed Rome’s bid for the 2024 Olympics and his experiences covering six Olympic Games over the course of his career. His best advice for young journalists? Always be curious.
