The Sistine Chapel needs no introduction. It is the official residence of the Pope in the Vatican City and is a part of the most popular and important chapel in the Apostolic Palace. The Sistine Chapel is the location for the Papal Conclave today.
One of the most iconic and identifiable feature of the chapel is the art that is on display. The ceiling and the walls are adorned by centuries old frescoes that had been masterfully and timelessly embossed on this historic building by the likes of Michelangelo, Perugino, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio and Pinturicchio among others.

I am Catholic & I love art, therefore the Sistine Chapel to me was incredible. However my husband who is not Catholic also said he was blown away by this place and said it was his favourite part of Rome. The history and paintings and the way it tells a story with a beginning (ceiling), middle (walls) & the end (the altar) was phenomenal.
Wow. Afternoon had thinner crowds so spent a few minutes just staring in awe at this space. Every inch filled with amazing frescoes. Wheelchair accessible which is a bonus.
The Vatican museum was great. The Sistine chapel is towards the end of the the visit and is kind of small in real life and completely crowded with tourists. We got there early and didn't have too much of a problem.
How did you spend the last 4 year's? Paint anything worthwhile? The Sistine Chapel, a true Master piece.
Amazing! The Vatican museum is a must-see in Rome. It's magnificent! Pictures aren't allowed inside so you can truly soak in the spectacular scene.
