The Vatican experience

The Vatican. Most people talk about it as it is one of the greatest places to visit. I love Rome but when it comes to the Vatican I was not impressed. People completely overpay in order to get in for guided tours that say that they will get you fast pass to the saint Peter's cathedral and they do not even come with you. The tours are not that good and when it comes to the Sistine chapel... well it is not that amazing. Actually as I said in Rome you can find a lot better paintings like that in any other cathedral in Rome and I am not lying. However it is a nice experience in order to learn a few things but it is not like going to Auschwitz or into the Parthenon in Athens.
