Inside the Vatican Museums, you can admire the best paintings, sculptures and works of art collected by the Popes throughout the centuries. In the Apostolic Palace, you’ll be amazed by the Sistine Chapel, originally called the Cappella Magna, which was restored between 1477 and 1480 and takes its name from Pope Sixtus IV. Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy the view of The Last Judgment by Michelangelo, which adorns the ceiling.
