On my second day in Rome, the sun was out! It was a brilliant day and I had the chance to visit the Vatican.
It was so incredibly surreal to be standing inside and outside the St. Peter’s Basilica. The architecture and artwork in every part of that building was so humbling.
I’m not a particularly religious person. But once I was in the Sistine chapel, something about the energy and ambience there really filled me with faith and gratitude. Can’t really explain that feeling. But it was amazing.
Outside St Peter’s square, there was a big huge Christmas tree! Luckily I was there after dark to catch it being lit up. Very festive
Got everything in view so that the tree could be appreciated properly.
Lovely place, this.
