Description

This tour allows you to enjoy an infinite number of masterpieces like Michelangelo’s “Pietà” and “Last Judgment”, gorgeous works by Bernini, Raphael, Botticelli, Perugino and other treasures all incredibly united under the roof of the world renowned Vatican museums. The numerous popes that have lived in the Vatican, continuously enriched it with different art works but the unmissable ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and its sublime ‘Last Judgment” by Michelangelo, are surely the real attraction.
After the complimentary pick-up from your accommodation, your private English-speaking driver will take you to the usually packed museum entrance, where you will meet you private professional guide, skipping the check-in line, you will access directly the metal detector control.

In the museums, you will admire the most beautiful Roman ancient statues, you will gasp at the length of the enormous Tapestry Hall, then through the Hall of the Painted Maps, you will enter the Sistine Chapel whose impact in history, religion and visual arts has no equal in the world.
At last, you will reach the largest Catholic church in the world: St. Peter’s Basilica. The greatness of the façade and care of details will overwhelm you. Due to Covid-19 safety measures, the corridor that connected the Sistine chapel with the interior of St. Peter’s Basilica has been closed. This means that every visitor must exit the museums and wait in line in order to visit the inside of St. Peter’s Basilica. Depending on the time we have left, we will decide whether to queue for the Basilica or tour it from the outside.
