With Pope Francis gallivanting around the United States, we visited Vatican City, an independent city-state surrounded by Rome and HQ of the Roman Catholic Church. It’s home to the pope and a countless treasures of iconic art and architecture.
A visit to Rome is not complete without a visit to the pope’s hometown, Vatican City and particular the Vatican Museums. We engaged in a a self-guided tour but you can also take a gay-oriented tour of the Vatican by our friends at the gay tour operator Quiiky. They point out some of the most LGBT-oriented art hidden in plain site.
Here are a few photos from our trip.
WIth that, it’s time to get back to your TV (or via a livestream like this at CNNGo) and watch the Pope’s arrival in Washington, D.C and travels to NYC and Philadelpia.
