Hey fellow adventurers! Last post I talked about landmarks, but I purposefully left out artwork. There are so many beautiful pieces in Vatican City, that I felt it deserved its own post. I’ll display some of the most famous works held in Vatican City below and the name of the artist. I won’t go into detail though. If you want to learn more about any, or all, of these pieces, I highly encourage you do some research! Art history can be fun!
