Michelangelo for Preschool children - looking at how he worked

Cappella Sistina (The Sistine Chapel) in the Apostolic Palace in Vatican City, Italy. Consecrated in it contains frescoes by Michelangelo, Botticelli, and others. Each time I visit it, I am awed by their work.

The Sisteen Chapel... I would not take for my time seeing this absolutely amazing work of art by Michelangelo.

The Sisteen Chapel by Michelangelo, Vatican City Rome (totally awesome and a must see)

If only one day in Rome, have coffee at Caffe San’Eustachio in the piazza behind the Pantheon and the visit the Pantheon and Piazza Navona. By 11 am, arrive at the Vatican Museums entrance and visit the museums and Sistine Chapel (2 to 3 hours), exiting the far right door towards Saint Peter’s Cathedral. Walk around the Cathedral (1 hour) and head out into the Piazza to catch a cab (you don’t have much time, remember!) to the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Forum. From there, you can walk out…

The interior of St Peters Basilica

***The interior of St Peters Basilica. Don't miss seeing the interior when all the lights are on- only then can you fully appreciate this jewel-box of color! Charlemagne was crowned king here.

Have you see the Sistine Chapel up close yet? It's one of the most stunning places to visit in #Italy. (h/t: @charcarper)
