Trip Info

The Vatican Museums belong to the independent state of the Vatican City, which was declared an independent country in 1929 with the Lateran Treaty. The work of art that is thought to be the first piece of the Vatican Museums’ collection is the statue of Laocoön and His Sons, purchased in 1506 by Pope Julius II and publicly displayed just a month later. Today the Vatican Museums include 53 halls filled with historical and religious works of art, all finishing on a high note with the Sistine Chapel, decorated by Michelangelo.The Sistine Chapel is one of many chapels belonging to the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the pope in the Vatican. It is the place where the Papal Conclave takes place, the process used to choose a new Pope. It is more commonly known for the beautiful decorations that cover the walls and ceiling. The walls are divided into three main tiers and depict the Life of Moses and the Life of Christ.
