"visit the Vatican Museums. ..." Vatican City Favorite Tip by Krystynn

Vatican City General: 181 reviews and 206 photos


Favorite thing: visit the <b>Vatican Museums</b>.

<b><font color=#CC0000>Please note that flash photography is NOT allowed in this place</b></font>; and in the <b>Sistine Chapel</b>, the extremely tight security ensures that ALL forms of photography (videocams included) is not allowed. These hawk-eyed guards will not hesitate to strip you of your film(s) if you're caught flouting this warning. So, behave!! ;-)

Fondest memory: <i>Do you have any idea how immense the <b>Vatican museums</b> actually are?</i> O.K., clutch your heart now.... It consists of 4.5 miles of corridors!!! Note that the ramp up which you walk from the lower entrance is a double helix. There are actually two ramps nestled inside one another. So, if you were to leave the museum the same way, you'll actually walk down a different pathway!! <i>Confused??</i> Yeah, me too!! Nevermind. All you need to do is to simply take note of this and you won't get lost. :-)) O.K.???
