Vatican Museum

Today we went to the Vatican Museum. We went about midday and it was very crowded. People in large groups were pushing through and it made slowly meandering through slightly difficult. We bought the audio guide and it was totally worth it. My favorite things to see were the Raphael Rooms and the Sistine Chapel. When we were there people we being a little disrespectful in the Sistine Chapel. You are supposed to be quiet and pictures are not allowed but people were ignoring that. The Sistine Chapel was incredible. There is so much to look at. The ceiling has very detailed paintings, the walls are painted, and one entire wall, The Last Judgment, was also done by Michelangelo, all depicting scenes from the Bible. You could spend hours in just the Sistine Chapel.
