Guide To the Vatican Pinacoteca: the Hidden Treasures of the Vatican Museums
Here's my guide to visiting the Vatican Pinacoteca, the Vatican's picture gallery. It's one of the world's best small museums. I identify 18 masterpieces in the Pinacoteca and give you tips for visiting the renowned, but largely secret, art gallery. More than 7 million people visit the Vatican each year.
