6:45 AM : Outside the Vatican walls.
The Vatican Museum entrance.
First view of the Vatican.
Resurrection of Christ at the tapestry gallery of the Vatican museums
The Gallery of Maps. The Ceiling of this entire gallery is covered in absolutely marvellous works of art.
A hastily and sneakily taken grainy picture of Michelangelo's ceiling in the Sistine Chapel. Photography is not permitted within the confines of the Sistine chapel and there are guards stationed all over who yell (quite loudly) if they see you whipping out a camera to take a picture of the famed ceiling.
Seeing the exit of the Sistine Chapel when it was completely void of tourists!!!
Entrance of St. Peters Basilica
Inside St. Peters Basilica
The Pieta by Michelangelo - a brilliant sculpture that is a representation of Mary holding Jesus's body once it was brought down from the cross post the crucification.
The dome above the Pieta.
