THE SISTINE CHAPEL IS BORN AGAIN

450 years since Michelangelo’s passing away. 20 years since Sistine Chapel’s complete restoration.
The Vatican commemorates these two events both occurring in 2014 introducing major innovations within one of the most admired works of art in the world: the Sistine Chapel.
A brand new lighting and air-conditioning system has been installed to guarantee the best visibility possible either in terms of hues and brightness of the frescoes. A sophisticated technique employing new video cameras will mantain constant temperature and humidity within the holy chapel, with a twofold benefit on visitors and paintings alike.
The Sistine Chapel is located within the Vatican Museums. It can be reached in a short time span by metro – line A: stay with us at Yes Hotel, we are at walking distance from the line A main station!164818738

A WATER NYMPH OPENS 2014-2015 ROME’S OPERA HOUSE

Rome’s Opera House (Teatro dell’Opera di Roma) begins its 2014-2015 season with the lyric fairy tale “Rusalka”, by Antonin Dvorak.
Love, sacrifice and betrayal are combined in this story, which was inspired to its Czech authors by elements of Slavic folk culture. It equally shares a few details with “The Little Mermaid” by Hans Christian Andersen and “Undine” by Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué: the performance brings to life the story of a water nymph who falls in love with a human prince.
On stage on 27th November 2014 at Teatro Costanzi at 7 pm, tickets starting from €23.
Yes Hotel is strategically placed, being at only one metro stop distance from Teatro dell’Opera: contact us for tickets and accommodation.rusalka_0416
