Welcome to Part 3 of my Travel Memories series as I prepare for my upcoming departure in June! Click here to read other Travel Memories stories.
When I was in Rome, the hands down, no contest, most amazing experience I had was touring the Vatican Museum. You may have noticed that I enjoy art (maybe), and the Vatican Museum was stuffed full of it. The Sistine Chapel is the most famous area in the Vatican Museum, and while it was fun to look at, it definitely was not my favorite part--too many people, no photography allowed, and the art was fairly far away.
My favorite paintings in the museum were not framed or spotlighted, but were painted on the ceilings and walls of a specific long hallway in the Vatican Museum. This hallway is known for being covered top to bottom in beautiful paintings and it did not fail to impress. I took the photos of the paintings below from the ceiling of this hallway!
I have no idea of the artist, so if anyone has any ideas I would be happy to hear them!
