Full description
Your tour of the Vatican is optimized to offer you a VIP experience of the great masterpieces of the Sistine Chapel, the Pinacoteca, the Vatican Museums and Saint Peter's Basilica. There is only the one route that brings you to the Sistine Chapel, passing through courtyards and palaces dense with history and studded with works of art. Don't rush through them like a stranger; enjoy them in all their splendor. You will begin by encountering the Sistine Chapel, where you will walk through its charismatic walls and learn of the genius that was Michelangelo. You will learn of who he was, how he lived and what his greatest achievements were, as you walk around immersed in his work. Following this you will encounter the Raphael Rooms, which will allow you to enter into the courts of the Italian Renaissance. Following the Raphael Rooms, you will enter the Vatican Museums, where you will become familiar with stories of the art and history which are captured within these breathtaking rooms. Following your art and history tour, it will be time to experience the Pinacoteca, where you will discover Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio and the last painting of Raphael. From the Sistine Chapel, you will then directly enter St. Peter's Basilica without waiting in line. Once at St. Peter's Basilica, you will learn the Story of Fatih whilst being brought to the center of the Christian faith.

Thomas our private guide, was exceptional. Very personable and knowledgeable, taught us what we would learn in a Masters Class studying Italian history! Remarkable! But... but... buy... no matter what, the high point of the tour, was St. Peter’s. We have been all over the world and NOTHING compares to what you will experience there. 1 word - Breathtaking. If you don’t go on this tour, you will be missing out.
