    The Sistine Chapele

    Finally, the Sistine Chapel, where you will admire one of the highest masterpieces of art: the Genesis and the Last Judgement by Michelangelo, that after the last restorations have gained their original splendour.-

    Ceilings in the Vatican Mueum.

    This is one of those "seven wonder" places every tourist wants to see. The famous painted ceiling is awesome. There aren't enough adjectives to describe it. You should not suffer from claustrophobia if you want to visit though, because the chapel is packed to the walls with tourists.
    Sadly, no photography is allowed. The picture here is of the corridor just outside the exit from the famous chapel itself.

    Make sure to take along your camera and break as many rules as possible by liberally photographing all the light-sensitive works of art. Trust me, its fun.

    don't miss the Sistine Chapel!

    by mitchimitch Written Feb 20, 2007

    The Sistine Chapel is right at the end of the Musei Vaticani tour. Don't miss this! Be prepared to be awestruck by Michaelangelo's work!

    if you plan to visit the sistine chapel and the vatican museums do it first before visiting the basilica. get there early because the lines get very long.

    The Ceiling of the Chapel

    The Sistine Chapel was painted by Michelangelo during the Italian Renassiance. It is amazing, beautiful and full of color!

    A painting masterpiece of Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel. The great Judgement, and creation of Adam as a part of it.
