The Simonetti Staircase.

The weather in Rome has been bad – when we arrived we were greeted by international news teams doing features on how bad the weather was. Today we decided to head to the Vatican Museum where for most of the time we were inside.

My favourite part of the whole museum was on the way out. The famous Simonetti Staircase. It’s a double-helix design. It is often photographed from above look down. I decided to shoot from below looking up.
