The museum tour ends in the spectacular Sistine Chapel, the extreme expression of Michelangelo's genius. Last but not least, you will visit the largest sanctuary of Christianity, St. Peter's Basilica, where proportions appear to have been forgotten in an amazing triumph of marble, bronze and mosaic works.
