... the birth of Christ. The Sistine ceiling is generally recognized as one of the most impressive works of art ever created, and the sheer size of this masterpiece (5,900 sq. ft.) is amazing. In addition to the ceiling, Michelangelo also painted "The Last Judgment" on the rear wall of the chapel, which is a monumental work of art in itself. Sadly, the poor illumination inside the chapel makes viewing difficult, and photography is strictly prohibited, ...

I could spend all day simply sitting in that study and soaking up the centuries of knowledge it contains.

From there, I visited the Markets of Trajan. This structure was built by the ...

... some green space will do! With exhaustion and jet lag creeping back in, we found our way to the bus stop (had to ask a police officer where it was), waited for 45 minutes, and made it back to San Giovanni in Laterano.

Enjoying our cones, we strolled back through the Porta ...
