What a surprise!

ImageI was thinking about all the places and attractions that I have visited and there is one that really surprised me.  It was the Sistine Chapel in Rome.  I envisioned  something completely different…larger.  What I discovered was that it was just this rectangular room with a half barrel ceiling.  When I entered the “room” it was wall to wall people.  A pickpockets delight!  We were shoulder to shoulder and even though I was with a  “small group tour” of the Vatican we were still very crowded looking up at the frescos on the ceiling  painted by Michelangelo.  So the question is…”how much research should you do before your trip” or just be surprised like I was.  I guess I like a little suspense in my trip and would rather be surprised.  What about you?

    I was surprised by that too! I was expecting a much bigger room. Glad I wasn’t the only one 🙂
