Vatican Museums

Of quite obvious religious significance are the Vatican Museums within Vatican City, central Rome. Having started as a group of sculptures collected by Pope Julius II, the museum has expanded to a complex of different pontifical museums and galleries that began under the patronage of the popes Clement XIV and Pius VI. Since then, this museum has attracted visitors from across the globe to bask in its vast collection of religious symbolic art, making it without a doubt one of the most globally famous and historically relevant museums. Regardless of your religious standpoint, this mind-boggling experience will undoubtedly stir emotion of some sort. We believe it to be a crucial destination for anyone interested in art and culture.
