IMG_0490These are all from St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City. It is so much bigger and grander and more decorated than these snaps show. Also, so much more crowded! Even though it’s almost the end of October, there was still a huge line of people waiting to get in- of course, you have to go through metal detectors to get into the Basilica, which does slow things down. But the wait is worth it. It is stunning. And the Grottoes are beautiful too- they’re free to enter from the Basilica, and did not look like what I expected grottoes to look like. They’re clean white marble too. I was expecting more rustic, damp, cellar-y grottoes, but I guess the Vatican does everything in style!
