    That was in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. It looks like a place it would be hard to miss the idea of perspective .

    Are you sure you're not confusing the Vatican in Rome with Uffizi in Florence????

    that's the Vatican Gallery of Maps.

    Right you are! Sorry about that.
    Sorry about that. Brainiac is right, as usual. It was taken in the Vatican.

    Seniza I know what you mean, it's called gold leaf in English.


    And why is there a cow peeing on your facebook page? Not that that's the worst thing that could happen on facebook... and it gave me a laugh! You have some interesting pictures, I like the first hotel sign.

    that ceiling is seriously insane. it goes on forever, and it's full of crazy paintings:

    it's not totally gold leaf as seen above, but it totally glows yellow as you walk through, I think they have special lights to make it look that way.
