The
Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel are one of the most amazing tours you can experience while visiting Rome. Once you arrive to Vatican City, you will be entering a world that will allow you to walk among some of the most beautiful scenic and historical areas in the world.

Within the Vatican Museums, you will encounter a wide array of sculptures, statues, and artifacts dating back to Egyptian times all the way up to modern times. All of these items have a story and a significant spot in history, not only to the Vatican and Rome, but also to the world as a whole.

The Vatican museums were constructed and even furnished over 600 years ago and is home to over 2,000 rooms containing tapestries, sculptures, historical documents, mummies, and one of the greatest art collections in the world.

The
Sistine Chapel is another adventure all of its own. Here you will be mesmerized at the exquisite detail of the paintings found along the walls and the ceiling. The ceiling along with the work of art behind the altar were designed and created by Michelangelo. The ceiling depicts the history of the world prior to the birth of Jesus Christ and the Last Judgment on the altar wall of course depicts the last judgment as its name implies.
