Create an itinerary including Stanze di Raffaello
At Stanze di Raffaello, wonder through the former papal residence and begin to grasp the genius of one of the greatest High Renaissance artists. The four rooms on the third floor were painted floor-to-ceiling by Raphael and his students between 1508 and 1524. The work was commissioned by the Pope Julius II, who wanted to appear superior to his predecessor and rival, Pope Alexander VI. Pay attention to the famous fresco depicting the "The School of Athens"--painted on the wall of pope's library--which portrays Raphael and his fellow contemporaries, including Michelangelo, as Greek philosophers.

  • If you can visit 2 things in the entire Vatican, than Raphael rooms and Sistine chapel are definitely the ones.
