Our guide, Salvatore.
Pre-organized tour of the Vatican well worth it. A smallish group, in quickly and very informative.
The Popes over the centuries were great collectors. Many amazing works by the great masters Michelangelo and Raphael.
There seem to be two things about Rome. St. Peter's basilica is absolutely huge and there isn't a great deal of intact Roman stuff. The Catholics it seems were very good at the art of recycling - to put it kindly.
