After heading back to Rome, Matthew and I knew we wanted to dedicate a whole day to the Vatican. We figured the Vatican museum would take up a large portion of the day - which it did - and heard that it's full of amazingly awesome art, artifacts, and what I generally refer to as "old stuff" - which it was! We Spent no less than 3 hours in that museum (and actually, it was probably quite a big long than that), and to be honest, it never really got boring.
|And we high-fived the Swiss Guard.... Not really. But I wanted to.|
so for the next, oh, probably good hour, we just walked around with mouths agape, impressed by the overwhelming awesomeness of it. And I, for one, could not get over just how massive it was! I think I just kept taking pictures hoping that one would capture the sheer size of the place.
Matthew and I concurred afterwards, if you have only a short time in Rome, you definitely have to make it out to the Vatican!
