Vista panorámica del Vaticano con la plaza de San Pedro, Roma Italia.

I chose this panoramic because of the symmetry and also the way it looks as if it is being wrapped around. Symmetry is present as 2 of the same structures are at the end while one main structure is in the middle.

Sistine Chapel | The Vatican.... Sneaky tip!  When you exit, sneak out the right side door with a tour group.  You're a 2 minute walk to St. Peter's Basilica.  Exit left... 2 mile walk back through the Vatican, down the street then to a giant queue to get in the basilica.
