These next three photographs were taken of the ceiling in the Vatican. No not the famous Sistine Chapel. The ceiling was painted by "lesser known" artists as quoted on a sign in that room.

We walked for three miles at this point to see these paintings. Still another mile to go to the Sistine Chapel. We were not allowed to photograph the Sistine Chapel.

These next four photos are views of Rome from little tiny windows in the Vatican.
