The Vatican by xthumbtakx The Vatican by xthumbtakx


[ Yes.....this photo is overdone. But this is my take on it. ]

The spiral staircase inside the Vatican Museums in Viale Vaticano in Rome - Vatican City, home to one of the greatest museums in the world.

Built by Giuseppe Momo in 1932, also called the "Momo Staircase" and the "Snail Staircase".

Although I'm not much of a history buff, this was definitely an experience... :shrug: I couldn't go to Rome and say that I hadn't been to the Vatican! Even though I never made it inside St. Peter's Basilica... :no:

Rome, Italy

I like the angle you picked as well as the shading - it gives the photo additional depth :iconclapplz:
