Michelangelo s masterpiece is surely one of the best sight of Rome and really amazed me by the fact that the painter was standing there to finish this for 4 years,drew in detail and the final testament fresco is really breathtaking.
Took my mother here as she hadn’t had a holiday in a few years after my father passed away. It’s quite a long walk as it’s accessed via the Vatican museum.
The whole museum is amazing and the highlight has to be the chapel. The...More
We were a couple with 4 kids (21,20,12,8).as it was very expensive to visit the chapel and pay, we decided to try it for free at the last sunday of July. As I read it is very croud at this free days and unrecommended to...More
This place made me well up. The 'murals' blew my mind. There is so much to study. Just fantastic. The guards are a little over the top but then I suppose they get fed up telling people to be quiet or to stop taking photos....More
While the Sistine Chapel certainly ranks as one of the world's most impressive church buildings, the atmosphere is more like that of a Moscow metro station than a place of worship. Visitors are constantly being shuttled through, with little time to take in the admittedly...More
We had Alessandra for our Three hour Vatican City tour and she made the tour very interesting as her knowledge is amazing! We were very lucky as we were in a group of four only so was well taken care of too! We definitely recommend...More
The chapel is an incredible experience not only due to the art but when you think it’s the venue where popes get elected for the past 400+ years it adds to the charm of visiting a historical, political, religious and artistic site. I visited twice,...More
A tour of the Vatican Museums ends with the Sistine Chapel, with its famous ceiling painted by Michelangelo. It’s hard to believe Michelangelo was more well known for his sculpture than his frescoes. Talking and photographs are prohibited in the Sistine Chapel, unless you take...More

Hi, just after some more information from people who have experienced this. We will be taking our 14yr old typical teenager and we are not really in to museum tours but do want to see the Sistine chapel. What are the crowds like, what is the concert that is included in the ticket price? Thanks

Guided Tour - Vatican Gardens? (1 Replies)
Hello! I am getting ready to book my Vatican City tickets online for April - I do not believe that we need a guided tour for the Museaum & Sistine Chapel or St. Peter's Bacilica...but what about the Vatican Gardens? I read in another post that you are only able to enter the Gardens with a guided tour, is this true? Is it worth a guided tour of just the gardens? Thanks!

Rome - tour in a day - skip the line (6 Replies)
My husband and I would like to do one of these "Tour Rome in a Day" tours with Skip The Line tickets - we will be staying in a hotel and not coming off a cruise ship. Just wondered - there are so many - does anyone have any recommendations? We'd like to see the Colosseum, Forum, Pantheon, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. Thanks!

Thanks so much for your reply. (I'm sorry for the duplicate post - I did not see my first post initially and so thought that I had somehow failed to post it correctly.) Yes we are looking for a guided tour, and not just to buy tickets ourselves.
Must See Places for Secular Couple? (5 Replies)
Hello--one of us is Jewish, the other is not, and neither of us is very interested in religion or art. We do want to see major sites, however, so, for example, when we were in Italy we visited the Vatican and Sistine Chapel. Mostly we like history, and would want to see old Jerusalem and Masada, but maybe more important than a lot of other ancient historical sites would be the struggle for Israel's Independence and the Holocaust. I also want to see the Sea of Galilee and float in the Dead...More

I would suggest some of the following sites for your tour: Palmach museum, Western Wall tunnel tour, Herodian, Zippori, Akko, Rosh Hanikra, Israel Museum, Ein Gedi to name a few. There is so much to see and do here it is hard to suggest a limited amount of places to visit, but the links above will help get you on the track you are searching for. Chana Israel
