What You Can Expect
Hear the stories and secrets of the intriguing Vatican while following your guide through incredible rooms like the Gallery of Tapestries and the Gallery of Maps, a seemingly never-ending corridor adorned with intricately detailed Italian maps. Pass through the Gallery of Candelabras, seeing ancient sculptures and opulent candelabras from Imperial villas, and wander through Bramante’s Pinecone Courtyard to pose for pictures in front of the bronze Pigna statue.
Amble through Raphael’s Rooms, marveling at the interconnecting galleries that showcase the artistic genius of Raphael, and then enter the awe-inspiring Sistine Chapel – the crowning glory of any visit to the Vatican. Gaze up at Michelangelo’s famous The Creation of Adam ceiling fresco, see The Last Judgement on the chapel’s back wall and absorb the sacred ambiance of the pope’s private chapel.
Your tour finishes with a visit to St Peter’s Basilica, the home of the Catholic Church, where more artistic masterpieces await. See La Pieta, a stunning Michelangelo sculpture created by the artist when he was just 24, and admire Bernini’s Baldachino – the ornate bronze canopy that sits above St Peter’s high altar. Bid your guide farewell and take a stroll through St Peter’s Square if you wish.
Upgrade to the private tour and see the sights of the Vatican Museums (as detailed above) with your very own private guide! If you have a special interest in certain pieces of art, or different historical or religious events, simply let your guide know! Your itinerary is flexible and can be tailored to your interests.
The tour was excellent and the guide very knowledable. I will remember this trip forecver
Knowing the place where are the rests of Saint Peter Jesus apostol and Juan Pablo II and where the Pope Francisco lives is very excited and full of art and history. Excellent tour.
Muy bien todo, puntualidad, organización, amabilidad de Valentina. A todo caso esperábamos un contenido con más explicaciones sobre el arte.
