We are on our first family holiday to Europe & arrived in Rome yesterday. This morning we did a tour of the Vatican and I couldn't wait to share some of my pics. The craftsmanship of the building & artworks was just amazing.

The tapestries were huge and all hand-woven using cottons, silks and wools. They were amazing.
I have more to share, including marble floors and mosaics, but am having a few issues with blogger so will post them later.
