The Vatican was not what I expected at all, I expected a real tranquil religious place, but as I should have know, it was the complete opposite. The whole place is stacked with Greek Mythology statues and pictures - apparantley the popes hobby?

The Sistine Chapel, is so full of tourists you cannot move, I was one of them, but respect people please!
There are signs everywhere and a tannoy voice asking you please do not take photos inside-but people still were, and I think this is a little disrespectful.

St.Peters is beautiful, it is so big and the building is amazing.

The Vatican Gardens are also very pretty.

But prepare yourself for the massive queues that you will face to get in.
