Pieta MichelangeloNo visit of Rome would be complete without a visit to the foremost church of all Christendom, to the Sistine Chapel, and to the outstanding museums of the Vatican City. The St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest Catholic church on earth, with Michelangelo’s Pietà , the bronze baldachin by Bernini and the many funerary monuments of the Popes, is a giant museum itself. The Vatican Museums built up over the centuries through the artistic, dynastic, and religious ambitions of the popes, have now grown into a museum complex of unrivalled scope and importance.
