Roman Holiday – Inside The Vatican Museums

The Vatican Museums, located inside Vatican City, contain some of the greatest sculptures and classical art in the world. I was utterly amazed at the vibrance  and detail in the paintings and sculpture, considering their age.

Below are a few images that are my personal favourites, but they in no way do justice to seeing the “real thing”

  1. Inspired and pretty

    How marvelous, these paintings and sculptures are spectacular ! I have read somewhere that museums do retouching on the paintings to conserve their colours. I really love this series on the Vatican Jim !

    • Thanks Ian. I do like the 2nd shot also. It suggests that the chariot has just arrived through the open window
