Entering the Vatican museum is a chore
in and of itself. At the start of the day, the line stretched down the
block around the corner, down that block around another corner - you get
the idea: it was LONG. S I went to St. Peter's
instead for the better part of the day and then went around 1 in the afternoon,
when the lines were much more manageable.
Now I like history and art, but the sheer
scale of the 'stuff' that is in the museum is staggering. I've included
a few pictures of what I saw on the way through to the Sistine Chapel -
which as for everyone else, was my ultimate goal.
