Vatican City & Florence Photo Diary
Before entering Vatican City everyone had to go through metal detectors and get their bags checked. It reminded me of going through airport security which instantly stressed me out. However, once I entered Vatican City, I realized it was actually a peaceful place, and a really nice break from the busy Roman city life I had been running through the day before. As we toured the city it was very calm and happy. I felt as if I was at Disneyland except there were no crazy carnival rides, just beautiful works of art. Instead of Disney princesses and cartoon characters around every corner, there were statues and cheerful security guards. While I was in Vatican City I was able to see the Vatican City Museum, The Sistine Chapel (no pictures) and St. Peter’s Basilica. I loved the beautiful paintings done by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel! Since I don’t have any pictures use this link to see what I saw.
