Bellagio ceiling? You must be kidding. Those ceilings in Italy and Sicily depict actual scenes, and IMO the Sisitine Chapel is the most beautiful. This one is awesome with the small children standing on the ledge:

Every ceiling posted here is miles better than most of the tripe that appears in that list.

Incredible they came up with such a poor list.
