Probably the most famous chapel in the world because of its incredible artwork, notably "The Last Judgment," Michelangelo's stunning fresco covering 10,000 square feet of the ceiling and wall.

I have seen videos and photos but when I stood inside the chapel, two things occurred to me. The floor area was smaller than I expected and the ceiling seemed higher. Only 20 minutes were allowed and no photos can be taken. The paintings are...More

There is no doubt that the roof of the Sistine chapel is incredibly impressive and a must see sight when in Rome. However, visitors are herded in like cattle and told to move back and to the side. One is told not to speak, ironically...More

I had a puzzle of Sistine chapel and I had a dream of visiting this place. And the reality was just like the dream. I do not believe in spiritual stuff, still I enjoyed the art and ambiance.

The Sistine Chapel is a wonderful sight to experience. Located within the walls of the Vatican and accessed via the Vatican museums it is certainly not to be missed. I would recommend taking part in a guided tour which covers some of the Vatican museums...More

So amazing, but so busy, no pictures allowed! Tour guides can be a bit annoying bunching people up and stopping the flow of people.
