Well this time my Visit was to Italy.... when thinking of Italy the first thing that comes in the mind is the Leaning Tower of Pisa… They say that Italy is famous for pizza. Sure would love to try some... we try to visit all the possible attractions in Italy. And hopefully we did... I guess... At first we went to see the “coliseum" it was a bit crowed but it was fun. The gladiators took pictures with us for free B.C we used our camera. They actually posed for 4 pictures with us. The horse and carriage people will try to rip you off, but you can avoid them.
After checking out the tower we took a break and had some pizza... as they say pizza in Italy is amazing... soft, crunchy, and yummy... although I couldn’t have had more than 2... Loll... but it was absolutely amazing.... it was the best that I ever had.
They say St. Peters Basilica is the greatest among all the churches. It is probley the biggest church that I have ever seen, it is about 5.7 acres and has a capacity over 60,000 people. Although we didn’t stay here for a long time, but we managed to get a good look at the church and got some really good pictures. After that we got a good look at the St. Peters square. Its an amazing view of the square... with so much to look at and so little time.
Parthenon we took some time off to go and take a look at the Greek goddess Athena that is the temple of Parthenon. Parthenon replaced an older temple of Athena, called the Pre-Parthenon or Older Parthenon that was destroyed in the Persian invasion of 480 BC. It is a good thing to know the history of Italy. All the monuments and statues... Were well preserved and the view is outstanding.... We managed to take a look at some to the museums on the way back home.
The Sistine Chapel's museum famous for ceiling painted by Michelangelo looms above the frescoes on the side walls that were painted by an illustrious team of artists that included Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Roselli, Pinturicchio, Signorelli and Della Gatta. The altar wall is covered by Michelangelo's Last Supper, revealing the figure of Christ hovering above center and flanked by Mary and other saintly figures. They say that Vatican Museums provide an inspiring visit to one of the world's greatest collections of art. The galleries stretch over four miles and include the magnificent Raphael rooms, the Etruscan Museum and the Pio-Clementino Museum, which boasts the world's largest collection of Classical statues.
Uffizi museum evolved into a display place for many of the paintings and sculpture collected by the Medici family or commissioned by them. The gallery had been open to visitors by request since the sixteenth century, and in 1765 it was officially opened to the public.
