Sistine Chapel

Viale Vaticano, Rome 00165 Italy
114 reviews

Try to schedule a time that won't be crushed. Be sure to see this. If you need them, bring your glasses, you want to see this clearly. Poor Michelangelo didn't want to paint this ceiling but was bullied into it by a pope. I have to say this is the best result of bullying ever. Michelangelo may not have thought ...

    Michelangelo's Pieta

    0.07 mi from Sistine Chapel
    4 reviews

    What can be said about this masterpiece? Behind bullet-proof glass, in St. Peter's Cathedral, the Pieta is a must for anyone visiting Rome. See Mary's peaceful face as she holds her dead Son, then notice her graceful left hand in a helpless position. This incredible marble sculpture was completed before Michelangelo's 25th birthday. It hardly seems possible.

    Vatican Post Office

    0.05 mi from Sistine Chapel
    2 reviews

    I like sending post cards from all the places I go, and the tiny micro-state of Vatican City has its own post office with its own stamps (and postcards). It's a small office to the left if you're standing in the square looking at the Balisica. There's a yellow post box in front. Inside they have seating and tables for ...

    Once you have navigated the queue for tickets and made your way into the Vatican museum, the Pine cone courtyard is a good place to gather your breath and plan how to see the many treasures. It is also worth looking around to appreciate both old and modern art in the courtyard.

    A serious Roman landmark, the Castel Sant'Angelo is also fun to visit. Peep inside at historical artifacts or see if you can get an invite to one of the events and performances held on the roof.

    Ponte Sant'Angelo: just start walking on this bridge, look forward and lean on the railing of the bridge, because when you look up you will see Castel Sant'Angelo! And then the emotion is strong, very strong!

    You could walk down the Via Giulia numerous times and never know that it was first constructed to connect the Vatican with Ponte Sisto; at the time, the straight as an arrow kilometer of road was an innovative development. Today, stroll along and browse the boutiques and galleries.

    The big church in the heart of Piazza Navona involved both of Rome's great architects, Borromini and Bernini, as well as Girolamo Rainaldi and his son Carlo Rainaldi. The beautiful interior offers a great break from the hustle outside. Stand at the top of the church's steps and you'll get a great vantage point of the piazza itself.

    This is the kind of shop foodies dream about: An old establishment with specialty food items from around the world displayed from ceiling to floor and across every wall. Local chocolates and pasta, oriental teas, wine, meats and cheeses, etc. You can find it here. A friend of mine walked me in before disappearing into the cavern that is the ...

    A wonderful Roman tour guide, Iris Carulli, once gave me great advice: To avoid the crowds in Rome, go to a museum. Here's a place where you can browse in beautiful peace. It's surrounded by graceful gardens, and was called "Le Delizie," "The Delights" in Renaissance Days, when it was the primo party spot for priests, courtesans, and nobleman. The ...

    Abbey Theatre Irish Pub

    0.89 mi from Sistine Chapel

    What I love most about Abbey Theatre is probably the location. Like other pubs in Rome, I'm not exactly blown away by the beer selection or prices. I did notice that wine was noticeably cheaper, and a cocktail with Jack-level quality ran only a euro or so more than a pint. That said, this is a nice place and the ...
