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.

I can't believe my eyes I've read reviews calling the Sistine Chapel something "not to bother" or that "it's nothing that special". Honestly, it's got nothing to do with appreciating art or understanding it. One star in this Chapel marking it as terrible really makes...More

This is one of the true wonders of the world. A spectacular piece of artwork, and will leave anyone awestruck and amazed.

Of all the great sites that Rome offers, this is simply the best. I would strongly recommend having a professional, guided tour. But even if you go it alone, you must go see this magnificent site. You will not be disappointed.

You can get online tickets via Vatican webpage However you still have to convert tickets to museum passes at just before the entrance. There is no magical solution for sistern chapel I am afraid

I used the original Vatican website - Trip Advisor won't let me submit with the link (?), but the web address was Biglietteria Musei- has English translation. Ticket purchase was fast and easy. Enjoy - I loved it.
