Sistine Chapel

Viale Vaticano, Rome 00165 Italy

You'll appreciate seeing famous scenes (like the Creation of Adam) in person. It's at the end of a VERY long museum tour, so you may be tired by the time you get to the chapel. But don't rush yourself. The guards will try to keep you from stopping in the walkways, so just step off to the side so you ...

    Cover your shoulders and legs but make sure you make it into St Peter's. Even if you have to brave the lines. The awe-inspiring feeling when you walk into St Peter's is beyond words. Just ignore the crowds and take in the shockingly beautiful architecture, sculptures, stained glass and art work. Well worth the wait!

    Saint Peter's Square is the Pope's outdoor audience chamber. The round plaza, surrounded by arcades, is generally full at all times with the faithful and the curious. When the pope is giving an audience or a new pope is about to be declared, it's packed. A fun fact is that the square itself is in Italy and the boundary of ...

    I saw Pope Benedict give a Sunday Blessing in 2005 a few months after he became Pope. It was amazing to feel the energy and devotion of the crown in St. Peter's Square and though the Pope was a tiny dot hundreds of yards away, it was pretty neat that he was there speaking to the crowd.

    Michelangelo's Pieta

    4 reviews

    What can be said about this masterpiece? Behind bullet-proof glass, in St. Peter's Cathedral, the Pieta is a must for anyone visiting Rome. See Mary's peaceful face as she holds her dead Son, then notice her graceful left hand in a helpless position. This incredible marble sculpture was completed before Michelangelo's 25th birthday. It hardly seems possible.

    I like sending post cards from all the places I go, and the tiny micro-state of Vatican City has its own post office with its own stamps (and postcards). It's a small office to the left if you're standing in the square looking at the Balisica. There's a yellow post box in front. Inside they have seating and tables for ...

    Once you have navigated the queue for tickets and made your way into the Vatican museum, the Pine cone courtyard is a good place to gather your breath and plan how to see the many treasures. It is also worth looking around to appreciate both old and modern art in the courtyard.

    Of course, we had to visit the Sant’ Angelo Castle after reading Dan Brown’s “Angels and Demons”. A few interesting points about this site: - Great views of the Vatican and Rome (worth coming just for that) - A walkway built into a wall connects Vatican with the Castle, meant to be used as an escape route or for special ...

    This pedestrian bridge over the Tiber has a fine view of the neighboring Vatican as well as much of the rest of the city. Unlike London and Paris, which navigable rivers, very little actually goes down the Tiber but the bridge is nice.

    Beautiful tree-lined river with many bridges. It is particularly beautiful in the evenings when lights come on. Take an evening stroll in the river walk after dinner, you will fall in love with the city.

    Gainicolo is a large park on a hill on the west side of the Tiber. It is immediately southeast of the Vatican and overlooks the center of Rome. A great place to picnic. On our last day in Rome, a Sunday in March, we bought food and wine at Campo de Fiore and another nearby street market, walked across the ...

    The Chiostro del Bramante, one of the high points of Renaissance architecture in Rome, was designed by Donato Bramante (1444-1515), who had arrived in the city after the fall from power of his employer Duke Ludovico Sforza of Milan, to become the leading architect of Pope Julius II and a fierce rival of Michelangelo. The Chiostro, or cloister, is the ...

    This is one of the amazing buildings by Borromini. It faces Piazza Navona and can be enjoyed from a number of different angles while in the Piazza. Unfortunately, despite numerous visits to the exterior, I never saw the church open. However, looking from the outside is the most edifying.

Local chocolates and pasta, oriental teas, wine, meats and cheeses, etc. You can find it here. A friend of mine walked me in before disappearing into the cavern that is the ...

    Impressive villa with some erotic frescoes and some interesting markings from the German occupation on the wall. We had a private tour so I am not sure what the public one entails, but I can't imagine it would be disappointing. The art is wonderful.

    What I love most about Abbey Theatre is probably the location. Like other pubs in Rome, I'm not exactly blown away by the beer selection or prices. I did notice that wine was noticeably cheaper, and a cocktail with Jack-level quality ran only a euro or so more than a pint. That said, this is a nice place and the ...

On the weekends, there are open air markets with all sorts of trinkets, from socks and underwear, to handmade linens, scarves and pots and pans. The shops along this road are more expensive than the market bits and ...
