  • San Pietro isn鈥檛 the largest church in the world鈥攖he largest one is actually in Ivory Coast鈥攂ut the Statue of Liberty could still fit inside, torch and all, and still look small compared to the 450 foot tall dome. The basilica covers 5.7 acres and is longer than 2 football fields, taking 219 years, 31 popes and 10 architects to finish. There are 4 dead bodies in the church and 201 more underneath it. There is only 1 painting in the basilica, although most of the intricately detailed mosaics are mistaken for paintings. The 4000 year old, 83 foot tall, 326 ton monolithic Egyptian obelisk in front of the basilica was imported by Caligula, the great grandson of emperor Augustus in 37 AD. It came in one piece.

From above, the piazza looks like a keyhole, hence the round dome, square facade, and circular piazza. The keyhole represents the key that were supposedly handed to St. Peter by Christ, representing the key to heaven.

Say what you will about the Catholic Church (they probably/definitely deserve it), but the Italian visionaries鈥攁rchitects, artists, designers, and more鈥攚ho built Rome, both in antiquity and modernity, who mapped out the San Pietro and brought it to life, we鈥檙e nothing short of ethereal.

  • // winter vibes in spring // 馃彅 
Ever seen Lago di Braies frozen? There are so many photos of this lake during the summer with the cute boats that I actually had no idea it would totally freeze over. Probably dumb of me to not thing that a lake in Northern Italy wouldn鈥檛 freeze over but I鈥檓 pretty clueless when it comes to winter weather. .
.
Aw much as I would have loved to see the lake unfrozen and with boats I鈥檓 glad I got to see it like this. Instagram is flooded with the summer pics so I bring to you, frozen Lago di Braies. .
.
This is a road trip I鈥檒l never forget not only because the location was so beautiful but because I nearly died and probably had like 3 mini panic attacks. .
.
Have you been to a place that was quite different from what Instagram portrayed it to be? .
