Sistine Chapel hotels
The Sistine Chapel is not only the best known church in all of Rome, Italy, but is undoubtedly the most famous church in the world, known mostly for its lavish architecture and Renaissance paintings. The chapel is part of the Apostolic Palace, the official Vatican City home of the Pope. Aside from the famous ceiling paintings by Renaissance master Michelangelo, the Sistine Chapel, which was built in the 15th century, is most notably the location of the Papal Conclaves, where the new Pope is chosen by the College of Cardinals. This iconic chapel is a masterpiece of art and architecture.
- Marvel at the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel where you will find frescoes painted by Michelangelo including The Last Judgement, a painting widely thought to be the crowning achievement of Michelangelo’s life.
- Check out the southern wall that is covered with frescoes that tell the story of Moses, painted by some of the most famous painters in Rome.
- Come to Rome during important religious holidays, when the walls of the Sistine Chapel are decorated with Raphael’s Tapestries, a beautiful collection of work that tells the stories of St. Peter and St. Paul.
Rome features an array of transportation options, but one of the best ways to save time and money is to buy a Roma Pass that will not only give you unlimited access to public transportation but also gets you free admission to the first two museums or archaeological sites that you visit. There is also a Hop-On Hop-Off bus that passes near most of the main attractions including Vatican City and the Sistine Chapel. The chapel is almost always crowded, so plan your trip carefully to avoid peak hours, when the wait can be up to six hours.
