What to Expect

On the day of your visit, head to the Vatican Museums with your mobile voucher and display it on your phone to the security guards and after the security check, scan your voucher at the CASSA ONLINE E GRUPPI, the Vatican ticket office at the museums. Once you have scanned the voucher and received the tickets, you are free to explore the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel for as long as you like.

The Vatican Museums are home to a number of classical sculptures, tapestries, and paintings by Renaissance greats such as Raphael, Caravaggio, Michelangelo, Bernini, and Leonardo da Vinci. A section of the museum is also dedicated to Modern Religious Art. Paintings and sculptures here come from artists such as Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Salvador Dalí, and Pablo Picasso. The iconic sections of the Vatican Museums that one should visit are the Raphael Rooms, the Gallery of Maps, the Sala Rotunda and the Gallery of Statues and the Hall of Busts.

Situated at the end of the Vatican Museums and neighboring St. Peter's Basilica is the famed Sistine Chapel. Built in the 15th century, its walls and ceilings are covered by some of the most astounding frescoes ever produced. The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is especially famous. Painted by Michelangelo in a span of 4 years, the frescoes of the Sistine Chapel are considered to be a cornerstone of western art. The Last Judgement covers the wall behind the altar and is probably the most famous single work of art in the Sistine Chapel.

Can I just say that it was just a little disappointing that despite holding a skip the line ticket, we still had to wait in a line?

I don't know of another time period that was as great as the Renaissance, and the artwork of this time is commendable
