Full description
Visit the Vatican Museums in the Vatican City on this 2.5-hour small-group tour, and see one of the world’s largest museum complexes, containing some 2,000 rooms that stretch for nearly 9 miles (15 km). Skip the line with your small group of no more than 12 people, stroll through the corridors to view the world’s largest private art collection, once intended exclusively for the pope. As your expert guide entertains you with tales of Vatican power and intrigue, you’ll feel the Renaissance works of art come to life. Amble through Raphael’s Rooms, the 4 interconnecting chambers adorned with paintings by Raphael and his pupils, before visiting the breathtakingly beautiful Sistine Chapel, which is considered the pope’s home chapel. Walk through this sacred Vatican site to see Michelangelo’s astounding frescoes, The Creation of Adam, and The Last Judgment. The tour continues with St Peter’s Basilica, step inside to see why it’s so much more than just a church, and gaze in wonder at its awe-inspiring architecture and mosaics, including another Michelangelo masterpiece, La Pietà. Steeped in history, St Peter's Basilica is said to stand on the ground where St Peter the Apostle was crucified and buried. The guide will explain the highlights of the basilica and its significance as the holiest place in Christendom.
