Vatican: Vatican Museums – Sistine Chapel

Sistine Chapel is the holy grail of the Vatican Museums. During 1482, Pope Sixtius IV had the walls of the chapel painted with scenes of Life of Moses and Life of Christ by various renaissance painters including Boticelli. In 1508, Pope Julius II has the ceilings painted by Michelangelo, with what is to this day considered the greatest achievement of all times. You walk into this and just almost drop to the floor in awe – it is surreal! There are benches along both side to sit and admire the ceiling and study all the naked scenes (although seemingly 99% of buff figures are male). And there is the famous Creation of Adam finger-touching scene as well. No photography is allowed in Sistine Chapel, so I had to purchase a guidebook and get the pics from there.
