Cheap hotels near Vatican Museums in Rome, Italy

The museum that Pope Julius II founded in the 16th century today attracts more than 5 million visitors per year. A ticket inside also includes a visit to the amazing Sistine Chapel, home to Michelangelo's famed ceiling frescoes.

The museums are open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For an extra special—and free—treat, arrive on the last Sunday of any month and enjoy complimentary admission until noon. Check out the museum’s Web site for more info.
