Tour Description

This tour is taking  you inside the Vatican Museum, one of the largest museums of the world.

After visiting the main galleries and the ancient sculptures collections, we will be able to spend time inside the stunning  Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo.

Then, through a special passageway  only accessible with a Vatican tour guide, you will have a privileged entrance to the overwhelming Saint Peter’s Basilica.

As your guide, I can tell you about the Reinassance art and gossips about Michelangelo and the popes, about the classical sculptures and beautiful frescoes.

I will show you the most hidden details of the Vatican to make you appreciate it at best.

The exact course of this tour depends by your interests and which sections are open on that day. Generally, we visit the main rooms of the museum until the Sistine Chapel, and then we go inside the St. Peter’s basilica

Are you ready to be amazed by the beauty of the history? At the end of this tour, the Vatican won’t have any secret for you!
