The arduous journey up the stairwell was well worth the view from the dome. Decided to take the opportunity to climb the dome, which was an experience in itself with the narrow stairwell A close up view of St. Peter's dome A view inside of St. Peter's Basilica The School of Athens fresco The ornate ceiling of the Vatican Museum Corridor I'm usually used to looking AT St. Peter's and not from it

After a month of living only just a few minutes away from Vatican City, I finally made my way to visiting it! Our field study took us through the vast collection of antiquities in the museums, the Sistine Chapel, and the basilica itself. The museums are located in what once was the papal country house which is connected to St. Peter’s by a long, large corridor that now showcases tapestries and paintings.

I&#39;m currently studying Architecture and minoring in Urban and Regional Planning (which has me even more excited to study abroad in Rome with its rich architectural history). As a lover of art, food, and adventure, I look forward to delving into the dynamic Italian culture and sharing my experiences!</span></p>
