Admission is very reasonable, about 7 euros, much cheaper than other sites in Italy. Good restaurants nearby. Not easy to find as not well sign posted, had to use google maps! Interesting historical/cultural area of interest.

Very interesting place. We did the last English tour and could come back the next day to see the museum as it was closed when we left. The lady who showed us around gave us plenty of information. Well worth paying the extra €1 for...More

Small and intimate, but packs a punch. We took the audio tour €3.50 and it was worth it for the explanation of the extraordinary detail of the masterpieces on show. Took us less than an hour to walk round but it was really intriguing and...More

The atmosphere in the chapel is breathtaking, so many beautiful sculptures in one place. Not easy to find, nearest Metro is 'Dante' , then ask!

As other reviewers already mentioned, while this is a worthwhile attraction, the entry fee is high, given that this is a small place - ca 30 minutes to see it all- and picture taking is stricly forbidden. No discount for seniors. Mid afternoon on a...More

This is just a small unattractive chapel from the outside which contains the most amazing works of art I've ever seen. Wow! When you enter, the noise and heat from the busy street outside just disappear. The central sculpture of Christ, draped in a fine...More

The Veiled Christ is simply stunning - lifelike and awe-inspiring. And the surrounding chapel is a fit setting for this amazing masterpiece with several other beautiful statues to admire. Not sure about the human circulation systems preserved in the tiny basement but makes a change...More

tough question. All are so different. Agree with PawPaw Slim, that for first timer Rome probably is place to start. Depending on how long you have, the high speed train from Rome can get you to both Florence and Napoli in... More
