This book is great if your looking for an introduction to the Vatican and its workings. However, there is really no surprises information wise. The pictures in this book are breathtaking. I would recommend this to someone looking for basic inside info. on the Vatican, its layout and artwork.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Well, I guess part of the problem is that I expected to see more of the 'inside' information and pictures in this book. It is more of a picture book with a few notations and some small feature type articles, but nothing really mind-blowing. I thought there would be more pictures of the 'never before seen', but it was not meant to be. Still, it does have beautiful pictures of the Holy See. Not a total loss, it is very aesthetically pleasing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
