What to Expect
With our exclusive, private Vatican tour, visit the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s with your very personal Vatican expert. This gives you the unique opportunity to customize the tour according to your own wishes,
Private tour of the Vatican Museums – one of the world’s largest museum complexes, containing 2,000 rooms stretching for nearly 9 miles (15 km) inside the Vatican City. Skip the line, 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 the Vatican, you’ll feel the Renaissance works of art come to life. Amble through Raphael’s Rooms, the four interconnecting chambers adorned with paintings by him and his pupils, before visiting the breathtakingly beautiful Sistine Chapel, 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 moves to 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. (If the St. Peter Basilica is being used for a religious ceremony or function and entry is prohibited, the tour will operate from the outside).
