Some of the most beautiful paintings in the world are held in the museums of the world’s smallest country. The museums of the Vatican contain some truly incredible masterpieces well worth the trip to see in person. If you cannot go there, or simply want to see these gorgeous works of art for yourself from home, I have found the book for you.
