I Catwalked The Hall of Maps at the Vatican Museum

Ok, I didn’t really catwalked the Hall of Maps at the Vatican Museum like Tyra Banks. If I did that, it’s either security would escort me out or join me sashay the whole length of the hall. ;D However, I did the Victoria Secret catwalk in my mind – with Adam Levine singing in the background. 😀 You really can’t blame me because the hall looks like a fashion runway! 😉

Hall of Maps. It’s also known as the Gallery of Maps. The walls contain the topographical maps of Italy derived from the illustrations of Italian geographer, Ignazio Danti. It is a 120-meter long gallery with 40 panels.

Look Up. The ornamentations on the vaulted ceiling are works of Cesare Nebbia. Yes, it’s a beautiful ceiling with complicated (at least to me) handiwork.

Anyway, I feel like the Hall of Maps inside Musei Vatican deserves a separate post – so here it is.

Where to Stay in Rome – Hostel in Rome

Hostel Alessandro Palace and Bar is your best bet in Rome. This hostel exceeded my expectations. The spacious rooms are secured with magnetic key cards and equipped with safe lockers for your valuables. You have to bring your own lock though. If you forgot to bring one, you can always buy one in their vending machine downstairs. They also have a bar that serves your alcohol needs. The staff are friendly and speaks English, too. The area has a lot of cafes, restaurants and grocery shops. The Roman Colosseum is 30 minutes and the Trevi Fountain is 20 minutes walk from here. But, most of all, it’s less than 5 minutes walk to the Rome Central Station. Trains to the airport and to another parts of Italy start and end in this station. You can book Hostel Alessandro Palace and Bar in Rome via HostelWorld and Booking.com.
