The further you walk in the Vatican, the more you feel guilty by realizing how many times you skipped going to church on Sundays.
The Vatican has a wonderful collection of art. Many of the churches have many wonderful masterpieces on the ceiling. They also have a collection of art from the many different countries Rome conquered. Which is somewhat weird because Catholicism was never the Western roman empire’s main religion.
My whole thoughts on this place were very mixed. They kept showing Rome’s accomplishments; however, they are claiming that they are not a part of Rome. Also, the Byzantine empire was the first empire to accept Christianity as it’s official religion on the European continent. The Byzantine empire was considered the Eastern roman empire but, they didn’t conquered the countries that the Vatican kept art from.
We eventually made it to the sistine chapel. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take photos or videos of the chapel since there were many guards. Also, there was a guy yelling every minute in a bad Italian accent,”please, no videos and no photos!” So I took the picture of the next best thing. The sistine chapel was in town one day when I was back home. Took a picture of it just for you all!!
Thank you for taking the time and reading this post. Much love!! Also, just a small announcement! We have a lot of exciting things that are about to happen. Stay tuned!!
If any local church looked like the sistine chapel, I might just attend every Sunday. But I’d sneak in my camera.
Haha same here!
I snuck my camera into the Sistine Chapel. sssshhhhh 😉
Haha I regret not trying. Lol
Beautiful, would love to go visit there sometime.
i went there last year at winter time and enjoyed a lot. Very beautiful place and again i would go with whole family.
I’ve been to Vatican City when I was younger, but didn’t see the Sistine Chapel. It looks beautiful!
It really was! Thank you so much for stopping by
No problem! 😁
What an excellent post. I read your post. You write a very good article with beautiful photographs.
The pictures look amazing!
Thank you so much!
Love this post! Been wanting to see Vatican City for a couple years but this will have to do for now.
Thank you for checking out the blog. Stay tuned for more!
These photo’s are beautiful !
Thank you so much for this comment 😁
you’re welcome lovely
Rome is one of my favourite cities, and as I only spent a couple of days in the city on my last (only) visit, there is still so much more to see.. my most treasured moment in Rome was touring the Colosseum on my birthday 🙂
I love your photos! I love my little Bible preaching Baptist church but most Baptist’s have a very simple church buildings- you will almost never see any stained glass windows, sculptures or beautiful paintings. I envy the Catholics their beautiful churches. I loved your photos- very nice
Gorgeous! Although the Vatican could stand to share a little of its wealth. 🙂
Great! Check out my blog for some amazing travel tips!
Good post! It’s a shame the guards are so strict about cameras. I’ve never dared to try and take a photo there
