First time ever in Rome and I had to visit the Sistine Chapel of course. The tour guided us through the Vatican museums until we got to the chapel. As we approached it, the crowds got bigger. I’m short 5’0” and I was pushed side to side trying to get in. Once we got closer we were shoved inside; it was horrible. Huge crowd! People were smelly and sweaty and being at my height I had to be all up in other’s armpits (not nice). I wish they would control how many people can be in there because truly I would never never go back to visit. I couldn’t take in the paintings because everyone was blocking my view. You are better off looking up the images on Google. Very underwhelming even though a big part of Italian history. Save yourself the money unless you don’t mind the smelly armpits.
