Winding down - Vatican Staircase

[Vote for this blog in the Photoblog Awards 2011]

This is the famous set of spiral steps inside the Vatican Museum. One thing I was amazed about throughout the Vatican - is that there is pretty much no restriction on photography except in the Sistine Chapel. Aside from that you can photograph all the works of art throughout the Museum, St. Peters and the grounds. Something, I was very pleased about!
