Crane your neck in the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City, Italy

Ranked #69 in our countdown of ‘100 Ultimate Travel Experiences of a Lifetime’.

Located in the Apostolic Palace, the Pope’s official residence within Vatican City, the chapel’s fame comes from the vividly beautiful frescoes that decorate its interior, most notably Michelangelo’s The Last Judgement and The Creation of Adam.

While the temptation is to crane your neck to take in these legendary works and then shuffle out in search of other wonders, spending a little extra time will reward you with equally brilliant works by Botticelli, Ghirlandaio and Rosselli.
