  • Visiting the Vatican we unlike many not passed. This museum is not the Vatican Museum and not equal to him. But recharged with coffee and cake in the basement under the Sistine Chapel, we had enough and the Cathedral of Peter and his. In General, interesting, especially if you listen to the audio guide and a lot less people than anywhere in the State.
