The Vatican’s Museum Complex houses one of the most impressive religious art collections in the world. The collection embraces art representations of art of every epoch and era.
Within the Sistine Chapel, we marveled at several of the masterpieces of Michelangelo, including his frescoes of the Creation,on the Ceiling and the Last Judgment, on the alter wall. A restoration of his works in 1998 once again revealed the magnificent color he used in his work.
Our guide took us to a small gift shop located just around the corner from St. Peters Square where we found some very reasonably priced religious items. Delicate rosary bracelets and tasteful leather bookmark made excellent souvenirs for our Catholic friends back home.
REMINDER: Attire which covers shoulders and knees should be worn by both men and women when visiting Vatican City. Flash photos and Video are not permitted in the Basilica, Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel. Some require that cameras be checked.
