The Vatican Museums

Visiting the Vatican Museums is a must on your trip to Rome. These museums are the third most visited museums in the world and are home to 54 different galleries including four statue museums: Museo Pio-Clementino, Museo Chiaramonti, Museo Gregoriano Etrusco and the Museo Gregoriano Egiziano. Get ready to see first-hand some of the world’s most famous artworks by artistic geniuses like Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Raphael, Caravaggio and Giotto.

The Sistine Chapel

Probably the most famous chapel in the world, the Sistine Chapel is known for its stunning frescos, especially Michelangelo’s world-renowned ceiling fresco: The Last Judgement. The Sistine Chapel is the 54th gallery of the Vatican Museums, completed around 1483. Apart from holding some of the world’s most inestimable artworks, it is still used today for religious reasons such as the Papal conclave, the process where the College of Cardinals elects the new Pope.

St. Peter’s Basilica

Designed by Bramante, Michelangelo, Maderno and Bernini, St. Peter’s Basilica is the largest and brightest example of Renaissance architecture in the world. It is the biggest of the four Papal basilicas of Rome, and it’s the center of Catholicism and the symbol of the Vatican State.

    There was still a long line for it being a ‘skip the line’ tour but we really didn’t wait too long and there were a LOT of people waiting / it’s packed so that’s understandable. My tour guide was nice and very informative.

    The tour guide was very well informed about the artwork. I also saw the Sistine Chapel for the first time as well as the Pieta, fulfilling a lifelong dream. I wouldn’t change a thing.

    No issues with the tour company; however, the vatican tour is rigorous in terms of time spent on your feet, walking distance, and stair climbing. It is also at a very fast pace. My husband, who is 74 with arthritis, could not tolerate it. There is no easy exit or turning back. My advise is to keep this in mind before taking on the vatican tour. I did suggest to them that they emphasize the physical requirements of this tour in their tour literature.
