Did you know:

  • The Vatican is actually its own country – and it’s the smallest country in the world with only 800 residents
  • In 1564 the Council of Trent deemed any nude painting to be indecent so the figures in The Last Judgment on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel had to be covered up and painted over
  • Michelangelo invented a form of scaffolding that allowed him to paint the ceiling standing upright – contrary to popular belief that would assume he was on his back

Things to see:

Vatican Museums

The Vatican Museum is Rome’s most notable museum not only for its Papal history and significance, but also due to the breadth of art within its walls. Its estimated worth is €15 billion so you’re promised exquisite content. With more than 9 miles of art and sculptures on display, not to mention tapestry and other artefacts, explore the ages from ancient Egypt to the 20th century.

Look out for the Raphael rooms – the Papal entrance – and admire its walls adorned with paintings from the Renaissance masters, Raphael and Michelangelo. You can’t miss the portraits of the Popes which hang to celebrate the leaders past, as well as the Sala Rotonda - shaped like a miniature Pantheon - and the Corridor of Statues, too.

Sistine Chapel

The Sistine Chapel is a stunning chapel – and arguably the most famous element of the Vatican Museums. Originally constructed in the late 15th century, it was famous for its frescoes and elaborate decoration by some of the greatest artists including Michelangelo, who painted "The Last Judgement" on the ceiling during the 16th century; as well as Botticelli, whose murals run along the length of the walls. A true pièce de resistance, it’s one of the things you can’t leave Rome without seeing!

How to get there:

- Ottaviano-S.Pietro-Musei Vaticano (Metro A line)

- Piazza del Risorgimento (Tram 19)


Please note that security checks are in place for entry, so please allow time to accomodate these.

Excellent, saves time and money! We purchased a 3 day card. The cost of the card was considerably cheaper that using public transport and museum entrance fees alone. At the Colosseum we were approached by a guide who wanted to take us on a private tour. We informed him them we had the Omnia card but we were looking for the dedicated entrance so we were not interested. The guide still showed me where the entrance was and on our way to the entrance the crowds waiting in the queues were very large. We were told the queues were 4 hours wait. We were inside within 10 minutes. Similar story at Vatican and Sistine chapel, again, our entrance was rapid and very efficient, walking past massive queues. We are planning to visit again later this year. Our first purchase will be The Omnia Vatican & Rome Card
