This feels like more of a holding area than anything else. It's packed with people and a lot like reviewing the lobby of a building. I would go here for other reasons...not just for this.

Just take a few minutes and see how great this looks from above and then below. For a short time we were amazed. Great for families.

A small museum holding a collection of gifts given to the Vatican. The double helix staircase at the end is both fascinating and unique.

The stairway/ramp goes up and down but looks like one. Optical illusion or puzzle, you choose. I am totally unsure!

This is a steep exit from the Vatican Museuems & the deceptive floor means the steps appear hidden so take your time. It does look amazing looking down & similarly looking back up when you finally get down toes straining at your shoe ends!

So gorgeous, however the crowds weren't too bad as I visited this part quite late in the day, and the crowds had thinned quite considerably. Passing through that many gift shops was a little off putting though

This spiral staircase is the one you will have the experience to walk down after the Sistine chapel almost at the end of your tour of the Vatican museum. It's very unique and first time for us. My thought is that you could rollerskate down...More
