Some things just make you say wow! But stairs?!

When in Rome, you of course have to visit the Vatican City as well. Located inside the Vatican City is the Vatican Museum. It contains one of the most impressive collections in the world.

After walking around the museum for over three hours, I wouldn’t expect the thing that impresses me more than the Sistine Chapel or the maps from another time, it wouldn’t expect to be impressed by a set of stairs.

But I was. To exit the museum, you have to walk down a very impressive spiral staircase. While they could have just installed the elevators, I am glad they thought big with something that doesn’t necessarily require it.The very impressive spiral stairs at the Vatican Museum

What do you think of it? Do otherwise ordinary things like this make you say wow? Let me know in the comments.
