Scrolling through the vatican pillars during sunrise 🌅 in rome was an experience that i will never forget. ♥️ if you’ve ever been around, you will know that during the day it is always packed with curious people holding their cameras, long (loooong) queues, and impressively tall swiss guards guaranteeing a secure experience to everyone.
yes, the vatican can be quite hectic during the day and that is why it was so special to observe the pillars turn pink with the first sunlight glows at 7h am during that warm september morning.
i remember the serenity i felt while reflecting the impressive fact that the vatican is in fact the smallest country in the world 🌎(it has a population of 1000 people, made up of the one and only pope francis, the cardinals, the members of the swiss guard and as well the vatican clergy). this is amazing, right?
did you know that they even issue their own passport? ✈️ 👉🏼vatican travel tip: being as it is one of rome’s most iconic attractions, be sure to buy your tickets online in advance and avoid unnecessary queues. 👭👫also, be advised that you are in a religious site and that dressing accordingly is fundamental (even during rome’s melting p*t summertime) ☀️ follow @labellesociety
