Vatican


The Vatican Museum displays works including sculptures and masterpieces of the Renaissance collected through time. If you could only imagine my face when we entered this place. I was in complete awe. I mean, pick up my jaw off the floor.



Raphael Rooms


Look at those details! Too bad you're not allowed to take photos inside the Sistine Chapel.






St. Peter's Basilica




Pieta by Michaelangelo



Meet my brother, Gino. My photographer for the whole trip.




I learned A LOT from this quick trip to the Vatican that my professors in Art School didn't mention. Or maybe I just wasn't paying attention. Haha!

Next stop, Florence.

We didn't have any tour guides during the trip so we relied on our maps and instincts. In all fairness, we got lost in Italy just one time (on our first day to be exact) and then it was smooth sailing from then on. As long as you know how the metro works, you're good to go.

One of my favorite metro stops was the Colosseo. Imagine the Colosseum greeting you as you walk up the stairs from the subway. Breathtaking.



"Are you not entertained!?"
Insert Russell Crowe from the Gladiator.




Outside the Colosseum.


Trevi Fountain under renovation, boo!


Spanish Steps


Rome at night. So romantic.

I find it so cool that almost all the buildings/houses in Rome are color coordinated.

Next stop, Vatican City.
