Vatican Museums


The Vatican Museums are located in Viale Vaticano in Rome, inside the Vatican City State. Founded by Pope Julius II in the sixteenth century, they are one of the largest collections of art in the world, as they display the enormous collection of works accumulated over the centuries by the Popes. The most beautiful masterpieces of the artistic and sculptural panorama are divided into 7 km of corridors, making them the fourth most visited museum in the world. The first building of the monumental complex, the Pio-Clementine Museum, was named in honour of the two founding popes. It all began with the discovery of the Apollo Belvedere and with the discovery of the Laocoön group, Clement XIV showed the willingness to open the gallery to the public.
Part of the charm of a visit to the Vatican Museums is to admire the complex of buildings that houses the museums. The main building was built between the twelfth and nineteenth centuries and served as the main residence of many popes; the most exciting fact is that many spaces, such as the Sistine Chapel, are still used today by the papacy.
The long exposition path of the Vatican Museums ends with the Sistine Chapel. This is the most important frescoed vault of the entire Apostolic Palace, one of the symbols of culture, art and architecture of Italy in the world. Dedicated to Maria Assunta in Cielo, this chapel was commissioned by Pope Sixtus IV who built it between 1475 and 1481. The paint brush that created this extraordinary masterpiece belongs to the genius of Michelangelo, who ultimately created the wall of bottom with the shocking "Last Judgment".


Every day the Vatican Museums welcome an average of 27 thousand visitors. Imagine the queues that could await you if you present yourself one day at the entrance without any reservation. To avoid wasting precious time that you could better take up in the numerous sections of the museum, it is essential to book your ticket.
