Travel Log: Vatican City


Vatican City is the smallest country in the world measuring just 110 acres. It is surrounded by a walled enclave within the city of Rome, Italy. Roughly 33,000 tourists come to visit the city each day. The Vatican Museum is open to the public and it contains an immense collection of sculptures and masterpieces from Renaissance artists. The most famous attraction has to be the Sistine Chapel. It's an amazing work of art particularly by Michelangelo. It was too massive to photograph even though we weren't allowed to photograph anything in the Sistine Chapel. Oops! All was forgiven as we entered St. Peter's Basilica and I drenched my face with holy water. Visiting the city is probably every Catholic's dream destination. Thankfully I was able to do this while I'm still young. Hallelujah!

Hello! Thank you so much for sharing us some information about Turin Italy Museums. This is a very good read. Keep up the good work! How I wish I could go there to see the beauty of Turin. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. You have such a very interesting and informative page.
I would just like to add that in Gallery of the Statues (Galleria delle Statue): as its name implies, holds various important statues, including Sleeping Ariadne and the bust of Menander. It also contains the Barberini Candelabra.
The Vatican Museums require the names of all participants in your group. Once you have added the reservation to your shopping cart, please enter the names in the provided field on the order form.
