Owner description: 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.

Because I didn't want to buy an excessive express ticket I waited for 3h30 in a queue. At the end I discovered that the guards only open the gate every 10 minutes to let 15 poor people to enter, giving top priority to rich people. Christian spirit! So it was the end of the day and we rushed to the chapel, hoping that the "cheap" 27 € ticket worths the view. I am sure you will not believe it but this dark (no windows - soft lights) crowded room full of paints IS NOT BEAUTIFUL. It is technically well painted but that is all. I will never pay such a high price and time for this! Thrust me and skip this visit.

Words can’t describe the beauty and impressiveness of the Sistine Chapel. It’s worth the trip to Rome just to witness the magic of the art work. You won’t want to miss this!

The walk through the Vatican museums to the Sistine Chapel is long but it’s full of gorgeous sights. The Sistine Chapel is gorgeous. There are a few seats but most of the area is standing room only. You can’t take pictures inside the chapel.

I don’t know what the fuss is about - the chapel is so crowded you can’t see anything, the guards don’t let people stay in long enough, no photos, it’s not like you can actually see the ceiling frescoes. I wouldn’t go again! Tourist trap!

Was amazed by the detail of Michelangelo’s Painting of the Sistine Chapel Ceiling. The painting are much smaller than I thought they would be, and hard to see much detail from the floor. Was beautiful, and VERY busy!!
