St. Peter's Basilica

During our trip to Vatican City, we visited St. Peter’s Basilica.  What an amazing visit!!  I don’t know if our guide bribed the Vatican official or not (hard to believe), but we got to skip the entire line.  There were thousands of people in line (at least it seemed like it) and they said the wait was about 2 hours long.  Regardless, the guide got us inside in less then 10 minutes.  It was an outstanding experience and I tried to capture as many photos as possible.  This is of the ceiling just inside the front doors.  I couldn’t use a tripod, so I did the best I could hand holding the camera.
