Supposedly the official residence of the Pope..The new Pope is selected here..On the ceiling and walls, paintings here were done by Michaelangelo... Truly amazing art work done 500 years ago...

Incredible artwork and amazing ceiling painted by Michelangelo. This is a must see while in the Vatican. Try to go during the quieter early hours before the crowds arrive.

The Sistine Chapel was included in our Vatican Museum tour. The art itself is awesome. The Chapel isn't as large as I had envisioned. The entire museum was crowded. I can't imagine being anywhere near Rome and not making time to see this.

The history of the setting is mind boggling
The magnificent work, the devotion of the artist and his assistants and the political significance of the work is wonderful
If only the hundreds of tourists would respect the need for quiet
It could be better

Beautiful paintings by Michelangelo on the roof and the walls make it a must visit. Photography and tours prohibited

If you're at the Vatican, this is a MUST SEE! It will be crowded but so worth it. The beauty takes your breath away!

When in Rome, a visit to the Vatican museum and the Sistine chapel are a must do!

I would highly recommend paying for a guided tour for the museum as you get to skip the queue and learn tons more about the artefacts that are in there.

Once inside the Sistine chapel be mindful of the rules: no photos, modest dress code and quiet.
Sadly a lot of people don't pay attention to these, which means that most of what you will hear is guards telling people off!

The room is also very busy.

However the artwork is fantastic. It is a breathtaking sight and well worth seeing.

The first direction given is to not take photos. Please respect that wish because you'll be constantly reminded and it'll be embarrassing to you to be removed for non-compliance.

The artwork is absolutely breathtaking so don't skip it during your visit.

It's close quarters during busy times so try to get close to a wall out of the way to spend a little time peering upwards.

We took a private tour which included the chapel and Basilica. Our tour guide explained about the history of the chapel and Michelangelo’s work before we went into the chapel as talking us not allowed in the chapel. This gave us the opportunity to be aware of the things she had pointed out. I would recommend any future visitors to be familiar with Michelangelo‘s work to better appreciate the ceiling! No photos allowed!
