The Vatican

Unbelievable. We saw the Sistine Chapel, which was amazing. You could look at it for days and not have seen everything. Not only the ceiling is painted - there are paintings on the walls by other masters, and one end wall is also painted by Michelangelo. It was hard to get to the chapel - every hallway we walked through was so amazing, with paintings on the ceilings and walls.
