the vatican museum in rome

view of rome from the vatican museum
the vatican museum!! wow!! i can't even begin to tell you about the vast amount of art, 
elegant space and treasures it contains! it's truly mind boggling.  
the vatican owns treasures from around the world and from every period of civilization. 
and that's just scratchin' the surface.  there's gobs and gobs locked away and out of view.
and as you know, 'they' own and gave a peek at the shroud of turin on easter weekend...
