Vatican Museums, Rome: 158 reviews and 375 photos

  Musei Vaticani; Rome
by sinoda

The complex of different museums in the Vatican is worth a visit or maybe two or three for it is reeeeealy huge.

The wealth and number of statues, sculptures and paintings is so overwhelming that a human's capacity of grasping all of it (even if you had the time in one day) is just being surpassed.

I for myself was facinated by the Sistine Chapel even though somebody could classify it as a Tourist Trap. Too many tourists, too much noise and far too many uniformed men shouting "Non si puo fotografare qui dentro."

Directions: The entrance to the Vatican Museum is on the eastern side of the Vatican.
