Europe

Rome

Rome is one of the breath taking City in Europe. Between my hotel, it was so nice. My hotel was The Ostello Des Artistes, which was $173 a night it include 1 single bed with free wifi.
The first nigh I went to the Colosseum. This art history building was build from concrete and sand. The Colosseum is the largest amphitheater ever built. this old, beautiful, unfinished building its so full of history. The Colosseum was 10 minutes away from the hotel.
The second day I went to go see the Pantheon which was 13 minutes away from my hotel, and a 6 minutes away from the Colosseum. A former Roman temple, and now a church. walking inside of the church is like walking in to a big ancient bowl. the reason for this is because its a big dome for the ceiling and at the very top of it a hole so the un peeps though. This building has an influential building of ancient Rome, with it fantastic architecture, its a living art building.
The third day, I drove 12 minutes to go see the Sistine Chapel. The Sistine Chapel was gorgeous, all around you are painting, every wall are covered with a painting. But not just any painting , painting by Michelangelo. The window in the Chapel brightingup the room and it illuminated the painting and the room itself.
On the last day I drove 10 minutes to San Pietro in Vincoli. The San Pietro in Vincoli is an church, and it reminded me of the Sistine Chapel, but less pictures. The church has this big painting on top of the ceiling, and I could never forget, within the church it has this gorgeous statue of Moses just siting there an watching people, and its full of detail and its just one of the things you couldn't forget when going to the San Pietro because its just this big grand master piece.
