    Musei Vaticani

    The Vatican Museums are considered among the most important in the world. A visit to the Vatican Museums is an essential and indispensable moment for anyone who comes to Rome. The mission of the Vatican Museums today is to make known, preserve and share the extraordinary legacy of culture, history and beauty that the Roman Pontiffs have collected and preserved for centuries. At the beginning of the sixteenth century, Pope Julius II was the first to exhibit a collection of ancient sculptures in the Cortile Ottagono, the most famous in Rome at that time. At the end of the eighteenth century, on the initiative of Pope Clement XIV and Pope Pius VI, the first organised artistic collections were opened to the public. From that moment a succession of new entries and new collections began, covering a vast period of time in the history of the world and of humanity, from ancient Egypt to the present day. The highlight of the visit to the Vatican Museums is the Sistine Chapel, linked forever to the name of Michelangelo and his depiction of the Creation and the Last Judgment.
