"The Vatican" Vatican Tip by fairy_dust
Vatican, Rome: 123 reviews and 315 photos
The Vatican is an absolute must-see for anyone going to Rome! Even for the non-religious, it's an absolutely beautiful place. St. Peter's Basilica is the biggest church in the world, and definitely one of the most gorgeous in my opinion. St. Peter's tomb is underneath it. Michaelangelo's statue La Pieta is also in the church. Also, even though we didn't do this, you can walk up to the top of the dome in the basilica. There is also an elevator to get to the top.
Also, the famous Sistine Chapel. The paintings in it are gorgeous. It's nice to just stand there, look around, and let it all soak in. Remember to not take flash pictures. The flash damages the paint, and you don't want these paintings to be destroyed!
