“The absolute highlight of the route through the Vatican museums is a visit to the Sistine Chapel (Capella Sistina). The name is derived from the founder of the chapel, pope Sixtus IV. The impressive ceiling of this 15th-century Sistine Chapel was painted in the 16th century by Michelangelo. It portrays the story of creation, the great flood and other scenes. The side walls are equally beautiful with paintings of the life of Jesus made by Ghirlandaio, Botticelli, Perugino, Pinturicchio and others. The wall behind the alter shows Michelangelo's painting of the ‘Last Judgement’. The Sistine Chapel is mostly known for being the space where the cardinals meet for conclave when electing a new pope. When a new pope is being elected, smoke comes from the chapel's chimney twice a day. White smoke means a new pope has been elected, while black smoke means the cardinals were not yet successful in their mission. ”

“Villa Farnesina is a mansion built between 1505 and 1511 and is one of the most majestic buildings that remain from the Renaissance period in Rome. The building consists of a central block, two small wings, and two floors. The interior of the villa is surprisingly richly decorated with frescoes by major artists, such as Raphael, Sebastiano del Piombo and Peruzzi.”

“An entire building entirely frescoed by Raphael, following through his brilliant brush the game of drawings of false architecture. Illusionistic and fun! (always check the opening hours on the internet!)”

“is located in the former monastery of Sant'Egidio, where the barefoot Carmelite monks lived until the fall of Rome. After it was restored, in 1976, the building became home to the Museum of Folklore and Roman poets, where materials on popular Roman traditions from the Museum of Rome and the Gabinetto Comunale delle Stampe were stored. In 2000, it was reopened to the public with the name of the Museum of Rome in Trastevere. The new renovations allow for a use of the building that is much more responsive to the current needs of the museum, lending itself particularly to the organization of temporary exhibitions especially of photography, performances, conferences and concerts. The museum's permanent collection shows the most important aspects of popular Roman life from the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, filtered through the tastes and beliefs of the artists and folklorists who represented it. The main themes in the collection are fashion, popular dances, secular and religious festivals, and crafts. ”

“The design of this Bramante’s masterpiece dates back to 1502 although the building was ordered by the Spanish royal family in fulfillment of a vow made for the birth of their first son, John, who died prematurely in 1497. The building was erected as "martyrium" to remember the alleged execution site of St. Peter. It has a colonnade outside, resting on a short flight of stairs also circular, crowned by a balustrade from which rises the dome, partially modified by interventions of seventeenth century. The interior has a round plan, on the altar has a statue of the apostle, made by an unknown artist of the Lombard school of the sixteenth century. Below the round plan room there is a crypt unadorned, where a plaque on the floor protects the hole that was left from the cross of St. Peter. ”
