Vatican City (Italy) recreated with 67,000 pieces of Lego
The entire Vatican City has been recreated in Lego, containing an astonishing 67,000 pieces, by the Italian Lego artist and architect Rocco Buttliere.
With a scale of 1:650, the highly-detailed model took Buttliere 500 hours to design and a further 300 hours to build. The Lego Vatican measures 131cm x 273cm and includes 1,300 pieces. Buttliere, who in the past has made models of Rome, has replicated everything from the Vatican Museums and Gardens to St Peter’s Square and Basilica.
In the video you can also see that there are a lot of parking places next to the city walls so it is really easy to get there by car. I love this place and will continue returning to the city when we pass by closely on our Italian trips.
