Michelangelo and the Secrets of the Sistine Chapel is a viewer-immersive show made in collaboration with the Vatican Museums.The viewer is taken on a journey through time.

Thanks to a free interpretation, the symbols of this timeless rite come to life.The Universal package includes: the entrance ticket, a welcome drink and the booklet in English or Italian version. The show is in English version. Headphones are available in the main languages (Spanish, portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, French, German, Italian). For children's tickets the staff may verify the age of the ticket holder at the entrance.
