Vatican City

August 28, 2015

The amount of historical, religious, and art culture within Vatican City is incredible. We were struck with a heat wave and during this time of year, it is extremely crowded. We had a guided tour within the museum and I could honestly could be there for endless hours just admiring the amazing art work. I was in the moment just immersing myself in the experience that I barely took many photos. The sistine chapel was breathtaking. It is definitely a must see stop when in Italy!

Quick Facts.
  • Vatican City is the smallest country in the world with the smallest population. It has a population of about 1,000 people.
