A Day Too Short at Vatican City

This past weekend in Rome, I also got the chance of visiting the Vatican city, see the museum, and be enchanted by St. Peters Basilica. I was so swept away by all the history the museum had in it, feeling like I really did go back into another time long ago. It was very magical and I really recommend anyone going to Rome to see the Vatican, because it really is worth all the hype it has!

Starting with the statues, there were so many, and again, so well preserved for the history each of them has. I wanted to take a photo of each of them, but that would mean sharing over hundreds of photos, so I am just going to share some of my favorites.

I also went into this large hall of old carpets, all with a story attached to them, with great detail, they were definitely considered art, most with a gruesome picture shown. 

Nearly the entire museum was covered in this as a ceiling. Every time I looked up I was amazed by the detail.
