The Vatican Museums are full of artistic and historical treasures by some of the world's greatest artists. Inside you’ll find epoch-defining masterpieces from Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, Titian and Caravaggio (to name a few).
The collection, housed in 54 galleries, includes the statue of Laocoön, the Apollo del Belvedere, the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of Maps, and of course, the Sistine Chapel, with Michelangelo's renowned frescoes. The artwork here changed the course of Western art.

Get there early and don’t rush to the Sistine Chapel; there are incredible pieces to see. Neolithic statues from 5600BC, The Sala Sobieski, the real Imhotep’s sarcophagus (Brendan Fraser nowhere to be seen).
Well worth the money.
