109 sistine chapelThis is the Sistine Chapel from the outside.  It’s pretty plain considering the treasure inside.  I had recently read Michelangelo and the Pope’s Ceiling by Ross King.  This was right before seeing it with my own eyes and the book really brought it to life for me.  I love Ross King’s books!  I often read one right before or during a trip when I’ll be seeing the very things he is telling about.  Here is a very cool website where you can navigate your way through the whole room and inspect anything close up without the crowds:  Sistine Chapel.  Enjoy the beauty and the mesmerizing music – a great little computer escape!

It looks a bit drab from the outside. I’m sure it’s wonderful inside though.

Yes, that’s the surprise. I think it’s kind of wonderful, the contrast!
