More than 300 figure paintings and about 4 years of labour-driven work. Michelangelo Buonarroti 's amazing Sistine Chapel ceiling painting is one of the many places I want to see first-hand before I die. Vatican City, Rome
MICHAEL ANGELO'S PIETE: No photo or words can describe this great sculpture -- some parts of it so thin that you can see the light come through. It is incredible beyond belief. I stood in front of it and cried. In St. Peter's Basilica (Vatican, Rome).
