After visiting the main galleries and the ancient sculptures collections, we will be able to spend time inside the stunning  rooms painted by Raphael in early 1500s and the modern art collection.

But the best is yet to come, and the tour  is completed by the magnificent the Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo.

I will show you the most hidden details of the Vatican Museums 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.
