VATICAN MUSEUMS AND SISTINE CHAPEL

Egyptian mummies, Etruscan gold, Greek marbles, Medieval tapestries, Renaissance paintings - it is all here in abundance, in the elongated complex famously known as the Vatican Museums. You can also view the Raffaello Rooms and Michelangelo's frescoes at the Sistine Chapel.
