Roaming Around

Vatican City – State is one of the easiest country to roam. Well it is the smallest country in the world. Surrounded by Rome you can easily explore the whole country in a day or two. To pray, appreciate art or to observe history.

Museum and Art

The Vatican City – State is not only the Pope’s home and the Roman Catholic headquarter but it is also a huge museum with historic significance and a large collection of art.

A View of Italy

There are a few balconies perfectly placed to get an amazing glimpse of the Roman landscape.

The Sistine Chapel

One of the main places to visit whilst in the Vatican is the Sistine Chapel. Popular for the paintings by famous painter Michael Angelo. Although tourists can visit this place, consideration is required as it is a chapel, there is a rule of no talking whilst in the chapel.

(Unfortunatly I have lost my own photo of the Sistine Chapel so the below photo is not my own)

St Peter’s Basilica

Probably the most iconic image of the Vatican is St Peter’s Basilica the main church of the Roman Catholic faith.

The Pietà

Located in St Peter’s Basilica the Pieta is another incredible piece by renaissance sculptor Michael Angelo. Another highlight that must be seen whilst in the Vatican.

“Travel isnt always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, even breaks your heart. But that’s ok. The journey changes you, it leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully you leave something behind”.

— Anthony Bourdain
