Full description
Take in the highlights of the Vatican Museums, from the Sistine Chapel to lesser-known gems of the collection. Visit the Hall of Maps, the Pinecone Courtyard, the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of Candelabra and the incredible Raphael Rooms. A definite highlight of your visit is the Sistine Chapel. Take some time to admire the details you have heard about, including Michelangelo’s boneless self-portrait, in which he expresses to the world that he would rather be skinned alive than paint the Sistine Chapel again! As incredible as his work is, you’ll appreciate it even more up close and after you’ve seen what it takes to create a fresco. Redeem your voucher at the Touristation office then the staff will accompany you into the Museums to get your official reserved ticket. Arrive at the meeting point, taking the Hop-on Hop-off Open Bus and even after visiting Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel you can continue your exploration for 24 hours

The museum was more like an art gallery full of beautiful religious art… if that’s your thing then I recommend. The art was very beautiful however a little repetitive and tedious and there was poor air conditioning. I would recommend the basilica much more as it was more magnifiant than the Sistine and you get to see more about the actual Vatican.

Zde jsem velmi ocenila doprovod průvodkyně do muzeí. Nebyla to zacházka mnoha kroků někde bokem, ale agentura sídlí hned u vstupu do muzeí. Na recepci muzeí bylo hodně lidí a chaos, takže jsem ocenila, že nečekáme ve frontě, že mě doprovodili dovnitř a předali vstupenku a nebylo to k nim daleko. Vatikánská muzea a Sixtinská kaple jsou nádherné!

Booked a skip the queue entry ticket, which was great as by 9.30 it was already getting busy. The museum was spectacular if you like to look at extraordinary ceilings, paintings and statues. I have to say i was underwhelmed by the Sistine Chapel. It was like a holding pen, as the small chapel was very crowded and you were herded around due to its popularity. I was just expecting more from the ceiling art, after all the hype. Worth the experience though
