A new addition to the Vatican Museums now open to the public is the Papal Carriage Museum. Situated under the main courtyard, it is a veritable treasure trove of carriages, motor cars, and other modes of transport.

A long view down the museum, each side is chock full of carriages and motor cars from each Pope.
