You can see The Sistine Chapel as part of a visit to the Vatican City. Take a tour around the city and this is included in the tour. See my other review.

After a long tour through the Vatican museums you finally reach the Sistine chapel. An amazing feat and beautiful art, but all over in a very short space of time in a very crowded room. It’s why we went, we saw it and moved on.

A historical place worth seeing. We can find there many well-known scenes from paintings that we have seen somewhere. If you do not want to stand in long queues then buy tickets online for an hour.

The artwork is amazing but there are so many people in the room you can hardly move and every 2 minutes the guard has to yell at people to be silent.

We’ve been to the Vatican museum a couple of times using a tour as it skips the extremely long lines that are well over a block long. The main problem is that the Sistine Chapel is the last stop. After seeing masterpiece after masterpiece through...More
