top choice #3...the vatican museum...the sistine chapel...

"The frescoes that we are contemplating here introduce us into the world of the contents of the Revelation. The truths of our faith speak to us here from all sides. From them human genius took its inspiration undertaking to clothe them in forms of incomparable beauty"
(Pope John Paul II, 8 April 1994)

so much has been written and said about the ceiling of the sistine chapel that all i'm going to say here is that its unmissable...its studied in art history lectures across the globe...everyone knows of the feat of Michelangleo completing this installation while lying on his back...it has to be seen and marvelled at least once in your life...
