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.

Impressive and moving. Be sure to visit if you can. Purchase tickets for the museums and go here first.

No photo is what you’ll be hearing from the guards here so don’t even try. Try to get there early to beat the crowds. Exit down the cardinal staircase with a tour group to get into St. Peter’s basilica without having to wait in another...More

It's amazing! If you visit the Vatican, you must see the Chapel. There are many valuable art works there and this is the culmination of all of them.

Youtube Michael Angelo and the sisteen chapel. It's a great quick historical take on the acrimony between him and the pope. It's nice to come here and put it in perspective. We were told not to speak or take photos not to disrespectful of whom?...More

So much to see! You couldn't just buy a ticket for the chapel, you get a museum & chapel ticket for €16. You have to walk through all the museums to get to the chapel. It is beautiful and worth the walk but would much...More

As we entered the room it was breathtaking! We actually got to see a service and the priest prayed for world peace. He also was blessing rosary beads for people and said prayers.

There is no discription adequate to the Sistine Chapel except that it epitomizes the Greatness of Michelangelo that is so evident in Rome. There are the sculptures, the city planning for squares and Saint Peter’s.

How can I explain this.. these guards or people of authority were shouting at everyone to stop talking and to stop taking photos but people kept ignoring them so they would get even louder. I know people shouldn't talk nor take photos of the place,...More

Definitely agree to buy tickets on line and go early. This might be the best way to avoid the inevitable crowd inside. One thing going for you is planning for September! And definitely avoid the days the Pope is having mass... More

I used the original Vatican website - Trip Advisor won't let me submit with the link (?), but the web address was Biglietteria Musei- has English translation. Ticket purchase was fast and easy. Enjoy - I loved it.
