Beautiful creation. Very entertaining, not a moment of boredom. The technology used is out of this world to make you feel like you’re part of the act. Especially around the scene showing the pope inside the cathedral and incense was scattered all over the hall....More

We were able to see this as part of an event and didn't have to pay for it. I'm not sure I would have be pleased to have paid the admission price, but I am grateful for having seen it for free.

The show is very impressive and informative, with lots of great ideas and very talented actors/dancers, but it lacks consistency. It feels more like pictures and ideas put together in a hurry, that do not tell a single or reach the depths that should. Still,...More

Yes, the digital effects are interesting, but don’t expect to learn about Michelangelo and his art. It’s all about the religious message and not much more. I was glad it was relatively short (1h and 15 min). No wonder only quarter of auditorium was filled.

Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent
souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and
pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
