Probably the most famous chapel in the world because of its incredible artwork, notably "The Last Judgment," Michelangelo's stunning fresco covering 10,000 square feet of the ceiling and wall.

Spectacular wish it wasn’t so crowded so you can truly take it all in. Make sure you bring the paper guide to understand what you are looking at. Tour guides are not allowed

What a lovely piece of history that everyone should experience, Catholic or otherwise. Be prepared to move like cattle through the chapel and no back-tracking -- one way only. And you're not allowed to take pictures in the chapel; although most people did. The teens...More

We purchased tickets from the tour agents (loads of them in Rome) and probably paid over the odds a bit. But we had a lovely guide, we’re able to take the short cut into St Peters Basilica and avoided 2 hours queuing in the sun....More
