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.

We only wanted to see the Sistine Chapel but you have to go through the entire Vatican museum to get to this. But once you get to it, it is just magical, the detailed paintings, everything looks 3D on the ceiling, the colors, the arches,...More

Definitely agree to buy tickets on line and go early. This might be the best way to avoid the inevitable crowd inside. One thing going for you is planning for September! And definitely avoid the days the Pope is having mass... More
