OMG, the Vatican museum has so much "stuff" in it there is no way it can be seen in one trip! However, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica are stand out high lights. I always thought that Michelangelo had painted the ceiling of the Chapel. Come to find out, he painted the ceiling and the walls. The entire thing covered with color! The floor is a marble mosaic while the walls and ceiling are totally covered in paint. His pictures are bright and vibrant.
The Basilica is ginormous! It is not possible to do it justice with a series of pictures or even words. It is awe-inspiring.
Did find a running store today so I bought new shoes. My feet are finally happy:)
