For the Saturday Photo Hunt theme, SWANKY, I'm posting a photo of one of the many exquisite ceilings at the Vatican, which has many, many swanky sights.


Vatican City is a walled enclave inside the city of Rome, Italy. Its area is less than half a square kilometer, but it packs thousands of gorgeous works of art and enough gilt trimmings and other ornamentation to decorate several small countries. The Pope may take a vow of poverty, but the church likes its swank. Luckily for all of us, the church likes to share. More than 4 million tourists and pilgrims visit the Vatican every year.
