Why locals love it

Musei Vaticani is one of Rome’s most precious treasures and, unsurprisingly, one of the city’s top tourist attractions. Locals only visit the museums once or twice in a lifetime, so don’t expect to meet us there. Nevertheless, Musei Vaticani and its Sistine Chapel are must-see sights when in Rome.

Why you should visit it

The museum hosts an immense collection of classical sculptures and Renaissance masterpieces. There’s even an entire room dedicated to Raphael. The Sistine Chapel is home to the world famous fresco by Michelangelo.

Special tip

Expect the entrance line to be very long, otherwise book in advance to skip it.
Free entry on the last Sunday of every month.

Beautiful, book in advance your tickets if you could ebcause of the long lines that could be created.

Can’t really be missed can it? No photos allowed of the famous ceiling and although it was colourful and busy, it was also crowded and a little oppressively policed. Glad I visited but couldn’t help think it’s a bit overhyped. Unless high season don’t pay to ‘jump the queue’. Just pay normal €17 on first floor of the museum entrance.
