Stairway to heaven


January 27, 2008

The Vatican Museum was a must see for my first trip to Italy last fall. I was so amazed at the incredible collection of Greek, Roman and Egyptian treasures at the museum. Then came the visually stunning Raphael Rooms and Michelangelo's masterwork in the Sistine Chapel. Just when I thought it could not get any better, I came to the spectacular spiral stairway that was designed by Giuseppe Momo in 1932. I spent nearly an hour admiring and photographing this amazing stairway.
