At the Vatican Museums, you will find the Sistine Chapel, one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world painted by Michelangelo Buonarroti.
The Museums hold many priceless works of art including the Raphael Rooms, and many galleries of sculpture, tapestries and frescos.
The church of Saint Peters Basilica is built on Vatican Hill, across the Tiber river from the historic centre of Rome.
This was the site where Saint Peter, the chief apostle, died as a martyr and where he was buried in 64 AD. St. Peter is considered the first Pope, so this church is considered the most important for all Christianity and it is full of historical treasures, where artists like Michelangelo and Bernini worked.
