Most Honorable Mention

The Sistine Chapel...

What to say? Unfortunately cameras were not allowed. What an amazing piece of art! From what I remember, it took Michelangelo 4 years to complete it. I did purchase a book on the Chapel so I could learn more. I'll educate myself and then pass along my knowledge.

I had to have a print of the ceiling since we couldn't take any pictures. Some day I may even have it framed!

Needless to say, I could have spent hours just staring up at that ceiling!

*** I also forgot to mention Michelangelo's La Pieta in St. Peter's Basilica. It was so moving. I'll try to find a picture! ***
