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.

Always thought this Chapel would be bigger. Unfortunately you can’t take pictures inside. Guides tell you about the frescoes outside before you enter. Gets very crowded.

I’ve visited the Sistine Chapel before but don’t remember being ‘herded through’ in the way that I was on this tour. The was no opportunity to observe the art work and take in the scale. The museum officials just want to keep the flow going...More

The vatican is worth it in itself but you HAVE to see the sistine chapel, it is amazing and worth any wait that there is. It is in a smaller room and heavily monitored but just take it in.

Not as impressive as you would expect, and don't even think about trying to take a photo inside, the security is so strict in the chapel.

The rule is knees and shoulders covered for everyone so longer shorts would be ok.

Officially you can't. And there are security guards looking at tourists for that particular reason.
