Next will be the extraordinary Gallery of Maps, a series of painted topographical maps of Italy each depicting a region as well as a perspective view of its most prominent city at the time. In the Sistine Chapel you will see the “Creation” and the “Last Judgment”, believed to be Michelangelo’s masterpieces in painting.

      Our tour guide Arianna possesses a great deal of knowledge. She was awesome and we were able to walk out of there with lots of information. If you are visiting Rome, definitely invest in “Skip the Line” tours.

      There is so much to see in the Vatican museums that I wish one could have a longer tour. However Sandra was a lovely guide and made us understand a lot about art and all the magnificent works we were seeing.
