Rome ~ Vatican City

OK. This post is little much, but this is how I'll remember.  This is my only documentation and I want to remember everything. 
We visited Vatican City in a few hours.  Our tour guide almost ran us through the museum. There were a few times we were so far behind, because of the crowd, that our headphones didn't pick up the tour.  It was so crowded! There were so many people there because a new Pope was going to be named in the next week or so.  The excitement in the air was pretty neat. 

St. Peter's Basilica
The Sistine Chapel was closed due to the calling of a new Pope.  Our tour guide still shared details about the Chapel. 

 People would be buried in this type of a box/coffin. They were very decorative.

 The picture above is a floor.  The detail was amazing.

This statue was to help with fertility.
This is a tapestry. It was huge.

Another tapestry.
 A tile floor.

 I love these stairs!!
The picture below is looking up.

 She those red drapes?  That is where the Pope waves at everyone!

Here's a little closer of those red drapes.
