Stairway to Heaven

If there is a stairway to heaven this has to be it. After taking an elevator inside of the Basillica of St. Peter's you climb 320 steps curving around and around inside the cupola and the walls become increasingly sloped and narrow. This is no place for
claustraphobia and no changing your mind either. There is no going back. Once you've committed to the climb it is only onward and upward. But these images are the reward.......the mosaic angels line the inside of the cupola and are breathtaking and so is the view at the top on the "outside"!.....If I knew how to add the audio I'd include the peeling of the bells while we
were at the top.......
