Totally unrelated with the Sistine Chapel at Vatican City
Apr 2019 • Family
For only 2€ per adult, it’s worth a 10 minute visit.
It’s a small chapel with painting on the walls and the dome.
No pictures are allowed.
This is not a replica of Vatican’s Sistine Chapel.

Beautiful, quiet and small

Unlike the other Sistine Chapel in Rome, this one is small. However, like the original it is a beautifully decorated chapel that Savona must be proud to have. Well worth the 2 Euros to view, and maybe even stop to say a prayer or two.

Very beautiful, albeit small compared to the other Chapels
Jan 2019 • Friends
It is a beautiful work of art, and it's an enjoyable visit regardless of religious beliefs, it's a gorgeous piece of architecture. It is smaller than many other chapels, so it's a quick visit, but besides that, it's beautiful.

Small but beautiful
Jun 2018 • Couples
We wanted to visit the Sistine Chapel (open only on certain days and times) and the apartment (open on Saturday at 4.00 pm and 4.30 pm). So we went on Saturday at 4.00 pm to buy the ticket costing 3 euros per person. There were several volunteers, mostly elderly but only the younger one, a middle-aged woman could speak some English.
She told us there was no English tour available and the 4.30 pm tour would only be conducted in Italian. We were not told what to do next so we decided to look around the chapel which is small but beautiful. When we asked whether we could take photos without flash, we were told it was strictly prohibited. About 20 minutes later a big group arrived and they were allowed to take photos so we quickly did the same.
At 4.30 pm we saw the younger volunteer shepherding a group of about 20 people to a building around the corner so we followed her. We were brought to the apartment and all the time the volunteer guide only spoke to the group in Italian. Even during a lull period, she did not bother to inform us anything in English. We were disappointed with her attitude and unhelpfulness. We also felt it was not worth visiting the apartment if no explanation was given. Unless you understand Italian, I would suggest you only visit the chapel for 2 euros entrance fee.

It is very beautiful, but very small. 2 euro to visit, but worth it. It is only 2 Sistine Chapels in the world and I've seen both of them now

Worth a ten minute visit

The place has an interesting history and is worth the €2 entrance fee. It is rather ornate in style and like so many other places in Italy.
