For a few more months, you have the opportunity to go up on the scaffolding and stand right below the painted ceiling. The painting is stunning, the guide talks you through the different characters and their significance and you're so close to it you can almost touch it (but definitely shouldn't). Make sure to bring your phone/camera as you can take pictures while you visit - and you'll want to. The tour lasts about an hour and costs around £10, do book ahead, especially if you're going at the weekend. It is a bit of a climb to get up on the scaffolding but it is very safe and you forget how high you are once you're standing on the platform and staring upwards. You may also be able to observe the conservationists working on the painting as you walk through, which adds a bit of spice to the visit.
Genuinely a fantastic experience, I wholeheartedly recommend it!More
