Vatican City-August 2007

We actually came here on two days, so we had more time to explore and see the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's Basilica, and see the Sistine Chapel. I loved this more than I thought. Loved the amazing art we saw here. I bought a book detailing what we saw and could not take pictures of so if you ever want to see that before you go to Italy.
One of the most impressive works we saw! Michelangelo was only twenty-five years old when he did this piece of art, for the jubilee of 1500AD. It is the only work signed by the artist (his name is carved on the sash of the Madonna).

This was taken inside the vatican museum looking out.
