Oh. My. Zeus.

 

Zeus
A statue of Zeus in the Vatican.

It was in February of 2010 when I visited Rome. I immediately fell in love with the city because of its charm. And most of all I got to tick off a box on my bucket list.

Ever since I was small, I love going to churches, museums, and galleries. I find it more appealing than spending the whole day at the beach doing nothing. Just like any other famous tourist attractions, there are lots of people who wanted to see the Vatican. In my part, the purpose of the trip is to see the place where the Pope resides and hold masses. It was definitely a dream come true to me to be able to step into the famous St. Peter Basilica.

I was awed by what I have seen inside the Vatican. Everything is just beautiful and artistic. For me, it does not look like a place of worship but a royal palace.

The museum is also filled with surprises. I did not expect to see a lot there. Just like the topless statue of Zeus!
