Vatican City

Vatican City...the world's smallest country and home to the Pope. Here we saw St. Peter's Basilica and Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel.

See the dome in this picture? Yes, we climbed 566 steps through narrow, spiral stairs to get an amazing view. It was barely 1/3 of what we climbed at the Eiffel Tower, but it was a lot more exhausting because it felt so claustrophobic!

Here are our views from the top of the dome.
