Festive colours: Vatican (Florentine) tomato soup

Finally, we again find ourselves in a country we have actually visited. We spent a rainy weekend in Rome in February 2014 and of course visited Vatican City while we were there. Vatican City (or, to use its full name, Vatican City State) lies within Rome’s borders and is the smallest state in the world by both area (110 acres) and population (1000). Other than being the home of the Pope, it is most well-known for its extensive museum (including the Sistine Chapel) and St Peter’s Basilica, both of which we visited.
