Description

Skip the queues at the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica as you follow your expert guide through the historic and art-filled sites. Learn about the artists that contributed the masterpieces that adorn the rooms and halls of the Vatican Museum and about St Peter himself.

After a convenient pick-up from your hotel begin the first half of your day at the Vatican Museums – one of the world’s largest museum complexes, containing some 2,000 rooms that stretch for nearly 9 miles (15 km) inside Vatican City. Skip the queue with your small group of no more than 12 people, then stroll through the corridors to view the world’s largest private art collection, once intended exclusively for the pope.

As your knowledgeable guide entertains you with tales of Vatican power and intrigue, you 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 Judgement.

Continue to St Peter’s Basilica, stepping inside to see why it’s so much more than just a church, and gazing 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 explains the highlights of the basilica and its significance as the holiest place in Christendom before you are returned to your hotel/ accomodation
