The title of the review says it all. You will miss out if you don't experience it for yourself. Pictures don't do it justice

Being in the Sistine Chapel just made me cry, it is soooo beautiful, more than any picture or description can ever tell you. This is wonderful and is a definite attraction to visit when in Rome.

The chapel is an incredible experience not only due to the art but when you think it’s the venue where popes get elected for the past 400+ years it adds to the charm of visiting a historical, political, religious and artistic site. I visited twice,...More

It’s busy most of the time. Go with a Company and skip the line. Although busy you still get through everything and you learn a lot more with the guide.
