Insight Vacations' Tour Highlight -Sistine Chapel


Sistine Chapel is the best-known chapel in the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the Pope in the Vatican City. It is famous for its architecture and its decoration that was frescoed throughout by Renaissance artists including Michelangelo, Sandro Botticelli, Pietro Perugino, Pinturicchio and others. The chapel takes its name from Pope Sixtus IV, who restored the old Cappella Magna between 1477 and 1480. Sixtus IV celebrated the first mass in the Sistine Chapel for the Feast of the Assumption, at which ceremony the chapel was consecrated and dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Today it is the site of the Papal conclave, the process by which a new Pope is selected. The Sistine Chapel is a major site of the Roman Catholic church and while on your Insight Vacations tour to Rome you will enjoy the tour to this location.
