Rome
Churches It seems like you can't turn a corner in Rome without finding a new church. Some are iconic, like St. Peter's. (below) Others are more obscure, like Santa Maria dell-Orazione e Morte (second row) —yes, that chandalier is made from spines! This is just a sampling of the many churches we visited.
