One cool fact was that Michelangelo actually painted himself being judged by Jesus (he is the limp flesh being lifted halfway up by one of the angels). We must be starting to appreciate art as we both really enjoyed pieces in surrounding rooms of the Vatican museums.
St. Peter's church was...well- even though the other churches were ...
