Vatican Museums

The Vatican Museums are a series of archival buildings within Vatican City, located in central Rome, that house many famous works of art by Italian Renaissance masters. For art lovers, the Vatican Museums are the ultimate fix. At every turn there are frescoes on walls and ceilings that epitomize the very existence of Renaissance religious art. Even in the Vatican apartments art lovers will find walls and ceilings encrusted with frescoes and other art forms, guaranteed to placate even the fussiest tourist. A trip through the Vatican Museums is a holiday through life during the last two millennia.

  • Missing the Sistine Chapel while in Rome is like missing one’s life. Obviously, Michelangelo’s painted ceiling is the overall attraction, but don’t forget the frescoes on the walls of this famous chapel.
  • Visit the grotesques in the Borgia Apartment of Pope Alexander VI, which show images created from Christian, Jewish, and Roman elements.
  • Decorating the walls and ceilings of several rooms near the Sistine Chapel in Rome’s Vatican Museums are works by another famous Renaissance painter, Raphael—the rooms bear his name but are works from other artists such as Fra Angelico, Perugino, and Raphael’s students.

The Vatican Museums are easily accessible via Rome’s major public transportation lines. From the Termini train station, Metro Subway Line A has two nearby stations, Ottaviano-San Pietro, Musei Vaticani, and Cipro. Walking to the museums takes about ten minutes from both subway stations. From Rome’s Leonardo Da Vinci Airport, take the Express Leonardo Train to Termini and follow the subway directions. Via bus, take Line 49 which stops in front of the museums, while lines 3281 and 982 stop at the Piazza del Risorgimento, which is a five-minute walk. Tram Line 19 also stops in the Piazza del Risorgimento.
