Full description

Explore the immense museum complex of the Vatican, home to centuries’ worth of sculptures, frescoes, and tapestries. Skip the line through a separate entrance, stroll at an easy pace in a small group, and learn from your guide about each building’s history before admiring the treasures within.

Visit the highlights, from the marble statues of Laocoön and His Sons and Apollo Belvedere, to the Gallery of Tapestries and Maps. In the Raphael Rooms, discover some of the most spectacular Renaissance masterpieces, and of course, the famous works of Raphael.
