What to Expect
Discover one of the 7 Wonders of the World and the world’s greatest art collection on a private guided tour of the Vatican City, and marvel at masterpieces of art by Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Pinturicchio, Perugino, and Michelangelo.

Your guide will take you past the long lines to enter the Vatican Museums, giving you more time to explore the art, and less time wasted on waiting. Originally conceived for the sole enjoyment of the Pope, the lavish labyrinth is made up of 2,000 rooms that stretch over 9 miles. It is said that if you spent 60 seconds looking at every item, it would take you 12 years to see everything.

Your guide will lead you to some of the main attractions, as well as reveal secrets hidden among the established masterpieces. An undoubted highlight will be Michelangelo’s frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. Admire his fabled “Creation of Adam,” and wander through the former apartments of the popes in Raphael's Rooms.

Then, it’s time for another Michelangelo masterpiece. Go inside the Basilica of St. Peter’s to see his “La Pieta” among all the other treasures. End on St. Peter's Square, where your guide will point out Bernini's ingenious use of optical illusions that embrace visitors in the “maternal arms of Mother Church.”
