When In Roma
Not so long ago I went on an impromptu weekend trip to Roma, one of the most ROMAntic cities in the world of which I planned a lot of ROME’in around. Okay I will stop.
My short trip to Roma was overwhelming. This city is steeped in history and culture that at times, I felt a little claustrophobic as there was so much to see. True to form, I managed to break my phone and most of the photos I took did not save onto my iCloud. It’s down to the digital age that if you do not take a photo of your travels, adventures or food that you feel as though you never experienced it. Everything is a picture moment! I managed to salvage some the photographs I took on my first day, of a place I was most impressed by and this was Vatican City.
Vatican City is one of the most sacred places in Christendom as the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church. A city-state surrounded by Rome, attests to a great history and a formidable spiritual venture. A unique collection of artistic and architectural masterpieces lie within the boundaries of this small state. At its centre is St Peter’s Basilica, with its double colonnade and a circular piazza in front and bordered by palaces and gardens. Its Vatican Museums house ancient Roman sculptures such as the Laocoön and Renaissance frescoes in the Raphael Rooms and the Sistine Chapel, famous for Michelangelo’s ceiling. Just see for yourself …
