Full description
After gathering at the meeting point just outside the city's walls, begin your tour of the famous museums of the Vatican City. These museums contain one of the largest and most spectacular art collections in the world.

Enjoy the collection of statues ranging from Ancient Rome and Greece before encountering the Renaissance popes, the Belvedere Courtyard, the Hall of the Muses, and the Round Room with the sculpture of Hercules. Traveling further, encounter the Greek Cross Room with the sarcophagus of Constantine, the Maps Gallery - which overlooks the Vatican Gardens, the Raphael, and finally the wonderful Michelangelo’s Last Judgment in the Sistine Chapel.

Travel through the history and secrets surrounding the Catholic church, and hear the stories of rivalry that existed between Renaissance artists. Following your visit to the Basilica of St. Peter, be surprised by the masterpieces of the Baroque genius Bernini - whose pallium is the largest bronze object in the world, and the majestic “Pieta”, by Michelangelo.
