What to Expect
Go to the center of Christianity on a 3-hour guided tour of the Vatican City, and see highlights from the 0.44-square kilometer sovereign state (the smallest in the world). Enter the Vatican Museums to marvel at the papal art collection.
The symbol of the Catholic Church, and a place of worship and prayer, St. Peter’s Basilica is home to immense riches, including Michelangelo’s “La Pieta,” a monumental baldachin by Bernini, and Pietro da Cortona’s “Pala della Trinità.”
Not far from the Basilica lie the Vatican Museums, where you will take part in an extraordinary voyage through the history of art. Enter the private apartments of former popes, painted by Raphael, and see the magnificent frescoes of the Sistine Chapel where the Papal Conclave has taken place for centuries. Marvel at works by Perugino, Rosselli, Ghirlandaio, Botticelli, and Michelangelo..
See Michelangelo’s “The Last Judgment” that marked the end of the Renaissance. Be mesmerized by the beauty of Michelangelo's frescoes, and the sheer scope of the dome at St. Peter’s.
