There are not enough words to describe how beautiful the Vatican was. It’s also massive, and I was only able to see a little bit of it, and most it was in passing because we were on a time crunch. Regardless, so much of what I saw was so breathtaking. Again, I was obsessed with the ceilings. They were so so incredible. Every part of the Vatican looked like it took 20 years to complete. And the Sistine Chapel…just wow! It was so beautiful, and it was incredible to be standing under a ceiling that took a man, a sculptor, three years to complete. Of course, I couldn’t take any pictures in there, but you can find them everywhere. Granted, no pictures can compare to seeing it in person.
On our last night in Rome, we went to the Vatican, and everyone was busy taking pictures. It’s sad to think that I may never see those people again. We spent ten days together, and that may be all we get. I’m so happy that I was able to experience all of this with them though.
If you ever take a trip to Rome, visiting the Vatican is obviously a must! It’s worth the aching feet and having to cover your knees and shoulders even though it’s blazingly hot outside. And of course, visit at night, because it’s beautiful!
