Vatican Museum

Rome, Italy

After you’ve marveled at Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel, one of the greatest artistic feats in the world, take the spiral staircase to exit the chapel and the Vatican Museums in Rome will inspire just as much awe. There’s no resisting taking a photo of the dizzyingly intertwined staircases built in a double helix formation in 1932 long before the double helix DNA strand was discovered in 1953.
