Unfortunately, no photos could be taken in the Sistine Chapel, so I have
scanned the picture on the right from The Guide to the Vatican Museums
and City. It is a great guide, I would recommend that you purchase
a copy first thing when you arrive at the Vatican Museums and refer to
it as you make your way through the exhibits.
In addition to the "no pictures" policy there is also a strict rule of
silence in the Chapel. However, I found it ironic that to squelch
the murmurs of the 500 visitors they blasted a message over a P.A. in four
different languages requesting complete silence. There is also a
person there to say "SSSSHHHHhhhhhhhh!!!" every 30 seconds or so.
But the artwork was (is) spectacular!
Some of the frescoes that you will see on the south wall include: Events
from the Life of Moses such as the Crossing of the Red Sea. On
the North wall you will find the Baptism of Christ and
the Temptations of Christ among the many works.
