We spent our last day and a half in Rome immersing ourselves in the pope’s country (really, Vatican City is its own independent country in the middle of Rome). There was so much to see and learn. I thought I’d share a few highlights.

The ornate bronze canopy over the alter in St. Peter’s Basilica (St. Peter’s tomb lies 23 feet below the marble floor)

A fountain in St. Peter’s square with the basilica in the background and light streaming down from the heavens (literally) πŸ™‚

Side view of an intricate (and massive) fireplace mantle in one of the bishops apartments inside of the Vatican… I wouldn’t mind having one of these in my house

A grand hallway leading out of the Sistine Chapel. How Fabulous!
