Rome Vatican City Map
Now I am in the Vatican City. I’m gonna check out the museums, the Sistine Chapel, St. Paul’s Basilica and all the wonderful paintings from Michelangelo and Raphael. Here’s something pretty cool about the Vatican City. It is the smallest country in the world. It’s crazy to think that there’s a country right here. Now I’m in Italy. Now I’m in the Vatican City. Now I’m in Italy. Now I’m in the Vatican City. This is St. Peter’s Square and it is grand as you always see on Easter Sunday when there are thousands of people in the audience for the Pope. Wow, look at this.
I am now inside of the St. Peter’s Basilica and this place is gigantic. It’s the largest Catholic church. No other building in all of Rome can be built taller than this dome. Behind me is the entrance to the Sistine Chapel. This is where Michelangelo’s painting, the famous painting touching the figure. That is one of the most incandescent things I’ve ever seen in my life. The colors are still as vibrant as they were yesterday. The secret is is they’re fresco. Fresco in Italian means wet, so they paint these when the plaster is wet and it creates a chemical reaction that puts the paint like into the wall. So this painting is as bright as ever. We’ve all seen this painting behind me. It’s one of the most famous paintings in the world. This is Raphael’s first painting ever in the Vatican. It includes all the greats. We have Michelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo. It’s incredible to think that I just toured an entire country in just three hours. It was so beautiful. There was so much to see. All the paintings, the chapels, the Sistine. No wonder why this is in every single history book in the world.

ome – Trevi Fountain
Right here is the Trevi Fountain. It’s amazing to look at how intricate these carvings are, it’s absolutely stunning, I’ve never seen anything like it. You throw over your right shoulder, right? There are about 5,000 dollars worth of coins thrown in here every single day. There is a saying in Rome, that if you throw a coin over your shoulder into Trevi Fountain, you will return to Rome. So I’m hoping this comes true. Here it goes.
