Accompanied by informative signage and audio guides, guests will feel as though they’re walking through the actual Sistine Chapel on an in-depth tour in Vatican City.

“With special expertise and care, the ceiling paintings from the Sistine Chapel have been reproduced in a truly unique way using licensed high definition photos,” they explain on their website.
