Get ready to be blown away by the several masterpieces housed inside one of the most important and visited museums in the world; the Vatican Museums.
Let your English-speaking tour guide reveal you the stories, anecdotes and fun facts related to the most significant works of art in all the history of western civilization.
We follow a carefully planned route through the Museums, visiting the most famous rooms such as the Sistine Chapel and the Raphael Rooms, plus a wide variety of galleries full of ancient magnificent pieces which will make it a jaw-dropping experience. You’ll learn about the characters that walked these corridors before you as artists, Cardinals and Popes and the dramas that unfolded here. On our private tour we will skip the line with a direct entrance in the museum, saving you hours of waiting in line on busy days – so your Vatican visit will be as enjoyable and hassle free as possible. After a few galleries that hold magnificences we will make our entrance into the Sistine Chapel, the second last highlight included in this tour and then we skip the line and we access directly into St. Peter’s Basilica too, so we can visit the stunning masterpieces held within. Built over St. Peter’s tomb, the basilica is one of the world’s most important Christian sites. It’s also one of the world’s most striking architectural spaces, taking the best minds of the Renaissance more than 120 years to complete. We’ll see Michelangelo’s ‘Pieta’ and the incredible Bronze High Altar made by Bernini and eventually conlcuding our private tour in St Peter’s Square.
