"Sistine Chapel"

The Sistine Chapel is one of the most amazing places I have ever been to. It is said that Michelangelo spent several years lying on his back painting the frescoes which cover the ceiling and I can well believe it. It is a real shame that we cannot get close enough to the ceiling to see the mastery of his brushstrokes although the view we do get is breathtaking. I had to content myself with buying lots of postcards from the Vatican shop and a book on the Sistine Chapel when I got home as it really is something that you want to hold to you and keep. Unfortunately no one is allowed to take photographs in there and you are also restricted in how long you are permitted to stay in there. Savour it while you can – it is a memory that will remain with you always.
