The end is the beginning is the end...

This has to be my favourite shot from Vatican City - it was such a long 2 hour walk (not to mention the 2km queue!) to finally see the Sistine Chapel (which was bit of an anticlimax I have to admit...) but seeing this masterpiece, the Simonetti Staircase, at the end of it really made my day :)

 

My verdict: Vatican Museums - worth the wait & must see once in a lifetime but be prepared for sensory overload (way too much art... and walking!)
