Owner description: 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.

You visit the Sistine Chapel at the end of the Vatican tour. So buy you tickets for Vatican and it includes entry to the Sistine Chapel. No camera or phones allowed, just admire the amazing art work.

Am I the only person that is really underwhelmed by this ceiling!? The paintings are decent but Not the best I've seen.

The symbolism of it all may have been lost on me as an atheist...

A must see once in a lifetime opportunity. No talking inside the sistine chapel and no pictures.
A guide is helpful but not essential if you do your homework before you arrive.

I was really disappointed with the our experience of the Sistene Chapel. We didn't buy tickets on line and we avoided the skip the queue staff who hound the tourists in the vicinity of the city. We waited about an hour to get to the ticket office. Once inside we were hearded through the corridors like cattle, shoulder to shoulder, very cramped and claustrophobic. It appeared to be the same for the skip the queue people too and the organised tours. The corridors are beautiful and the artefacts interesting, however the Sistene chapel was not treated with any respect. Also, health and safety clearly doesn't feature. Simply too unbelievably overcrowded not a pleasant experience at all.

We have all seen that one image from the centre of the Sistine chapel but like all the other ceilings in the Vatican there is so much to see you will never be able to take it all in for your visit so spend the whole day and take your time you will be amazed
