It is simply breathtaking, can not put it in words, the intrinsic work which has been done or the history of the place it is something which you need to visit when in Vatican.

The Sistine Chapel is the highlight of the Vatican tour. Highly recommend booking a walking tour in advance to skip the long lines and make the most of the visit.

If you’re into a god then it’s a nice place to visit. But it does go on a bit. And the staff in the Chapel are very very against pictures.... god can see everything apparently but we can’t take a picture to remember god!

Not enough can be said about visiting the Sistine Chapel-the highlight of the Vatican City tour. This is a must see-be sure to follow the rules and refrain from snapping a photo. The place is too sacred and magical to be captured on film. Sometimes...More

Seeing the paintings up close and personal, I must say it’s worth it. A little crowded and limited seating but you simply look up and admire the ceiling. We took the tour and it gave us a breakdown and meaning of the painting. I’d recommend...More
