Sistine Chapel (Capella Sistina)

Home to two of the world’s most famous works of art – Michelangelo’s ceiling frescoes (1508–1512) and his Giudizio Universale (Last Judgment; 1535–1541) – the Sistine Chapel is the one place everyone wants to see...

Built atop an earlier 4th-century church, [St. Peter's Basilica] was completed in 1626 after 120 years' construction. Its lavish interior contains many spectacular works of art, including three of Italy's most celebrated masterpieces: Michelangelo’s Pietà, his soaring dome, and Bernini’s 29m-high baldachin over the papal altar.

A heady mix of haunting sights, awe-inspiring art and vibrant street life, Italy's Eternal City is one of the world's most beautiful and inspiring...

Modern slavery has become a catch-all term to describe human trafficking, forced labour, debt bondage, sex trafficking, forced marriage and other slave-like exploitation.

All these efforts, yet the numbers of modern day slaves have swelled dramatically - from 12.3 million in 2005 (ILO), to 45.8 million in 2016 (Global Slavery Index). This fight is evidently a losing fight!
 
More than 15 years since a global treaty to combat human trafficking was adopted, nearly 46 million people are enslaved.
To coincide with the launch of the 2016 Global Slavery Index, here's a timeline of key events in the fight against modern slavery this century.

I bought a 2015 RAV4 XLE, and our overall experience was good. Our sales agent was new to the job, and needed help from several colleagues to answer our questions and resolve a couple of issues.
