General impressions of the Vatican museum

Vatican City and the museum is one of the most popular tourist places in Rome. Take this into account, it is always busy and we recommend you to reserve your tickets in advance on the internet. Is will avoid the risk that you have to wait in line for hours. In this first article about the museum, we will share with you some of the fabulous pieces of art. For us, the paintings were the most impressive of all. The works are all restored and of excellent quality. The catholic church most spend fortunes to keep this in shape.

Vaticaanstad en zijn museum is een van de meest populaire toeristische bestemmingen in Rome. Hou hier rekening mee, het is er altijd druk en we bevelen je aan inkomtickets vooraf te kopen op het internet. Hiermee vermijd je het risico op urenlange wachtrijen. In ons eerste artikel over het Vaticaans museum gaan we enkele wondermooie kunstwerken met u delen. Voor ons, waren de schilderijen het meest indrukwekkende. Alle kunstwerken zijn gerestoreerd en van uitstekende kwaliteit. De katholieke kerk moet hieraan fortuinen besteden om dit in deze staat te kunnen behouden.

  6. These are fantastic!! What is that awesome spiral, it is my favorite! Is is gorgeous, it would be worth the trip just to see that one thing! Is it a staircase or a ramp? And what is the black line down the front of baby Jesus?
