Sistine Chapel Guide

Happy April Fools’ Day!

Last year, I pulled a prank in providing the recipe for Sweet and Sour Pork. This year, I am going for seriousness and decided that I could generate a lot of views too, even without resorting to pulling a prank.

This is for those of you who are planning a trip to the Sistine Chapel, it is Easter after all. A quick word, no photography is allowed at the Sistine Chapel!
