About these ratings

You'll find one of Vatican City's most notorious attractions housed within these walls — the Sistine Chapel (and Michelangelo's famous frescos). A tour of the Vatican Museums grants access to various sections of the palaces, the Sistine Chapel included. But don't overlook the treasures housed within the museums themselves, including the spiral staircase and the Raphael Rooms. The Vatican Museums are so immense that guided tours are highly recommended though they make the price of visiting pretty expensive. Audio-guides are a much cheaper alternative.

Keep in mind that the museums are notoriously crowded, especially so on Saturdays, Mondays, the last Sunday of the month, rainy days and around holidays. You should also respect the museums' dress code (no short skirts, shorts or bare shoulders), as well as the whisper and no-photo policies in the Sistine Chapel. Located in Vatican City, you can find the museums off the Cipro-Musei Vaticani metro stop. Tickets cost 16 EUR (about $22 USD) for adults and 8 EUR (about $11 USD) for children ages 6 to 18.
