First stop: The Vatican!
My early exposure to art history instilled in me a deep love and appreciation for not only this place but the incredible treasures hidden inside. It was my number one priority while visiting Rome, and for me, it did not disappoint.

Bernini's Baldacchino, a bronze canopy situated above St. Peter's Tomb. An iconic piece of work both artistically and architecturally, I've dreamed about seeing this since the 6th grade when I first studied it.
