Despite being very large and historically significant, the Popes' Palace is somewhat bare internally, with most frescoes worn away and any traces of residency long removed. Fine statues, grand scale and skill of construction are all that remain to impress. Even the audio-guide could not quite inspire any great feelings of awe at what we were seeing. Still, we were glad that we came.
