Things To Do In Ottawa: Visit the Sistine Chapel

Have you ever seen the Sistine Chapel up close? I did and I didn’t have to leave the city to do it either.

Hi! My name is Sandy Esprit and I love to travel. Unfortunately in this economy, it seems like I’d have to literally sell my hopes and dreams to travel abroad. Eerything is so expensive these days.

However, if you live in the Nation’s Capital, Ottawa, Ontario you can see the Sistine Chapel in all of its glory without the cost of any airplane ticket.

The internationally acclaimed Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition is open at Ottawa’s EY Centre and is running from December 9th to January 22nd. Ottawans can enjoy the unique experience of seeing the treasured jewel of Vatican City up close without having to pack a suitcase or board a plane. With 34 artfully displayed reproductions, this innovative presentation will allow guests to view spectacular ceiling frescoes from the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel at their own pace, free from long lines and pressing crowds of tourists.

With special expertise and care the ceiling paintings from the Sistine Chapel have been reproduced in a truly unique way using licensed high definition photos. Brought to life using a special printing technique that emulates the look and feel of the original paintings, visitors are given a chance to engage with the artwork in ways that were never before possible: seeing every detail, every brushstroke and every color of the frescoes. Each image is accompanied by informative signage and audio guides for an even more in-depth experience.

It’s literally a breathtaking and beautiful exhibit. Make sure to take advantage while you can.

See you on the next post. Ciao for now!
