Well officially you are not allowed to take pictures inside Sistine Chapel. For the record this was taken without flash, and I took it before I realized that it is not allowed either. The Chapel is absolutely stunning - where else you are going to see frescos covering 10,000 square feet of the ceiling and wall. I cannot imagine what it took to complete this painting - hours and hours of labor from Michelangelo and his assistants. It would be so great to be there a little longer but guards kept pushing us out the door because of the nonstop flow of people.
