Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Pass By: Vatican Museums
After meeting with your tour guide, you will reach the usually packed museum entrance, where, skipping the check-in line, you will enter the museums through a panoramic terrace. You will enjoy a stunning view of St. Peter's dome overlooking the Vatican gardens; the perfect spot to take a great picture! The guide will then walk you through all the highlights of the museums which include masterpieces and artefacts from different cultures and civilizations. You will enter the Pio Clementine museum, famous for its unique Greek/Roman ancient statues such as the Laocoon group, you will gasp at the length of the enormous Tapestry Hall, then through the Hall of the Painted Maps, you will enter the Sistine Chapel whose impact in history, religion and visual arts has no equal in the world. All of this in a small and intimate group of maximum 10 people since we don't want to make our clients feel uncomfortable in big groups.
Stop At: Sistine Chapel
Inside the world renowned Sistine Chapel, you will admire Michelangelo's frescoed ceiling, considered by many art historians, as one of the greatest masterpieces in history.
"Without having seen the Sistine Chapel one can form no appreciable idea of what one man is capable of achieving."
Johann Wolfgang Goethe (1787)

Duration: 15 minutes
Stop At: St. Peter's Basilica
After visiting the Sistine Chapel, through a special door available only if accompanied by your tour guide, you will reach the largest Catholic church in the world: Saint Peter's Basilica. This is where Michelangelo's sculpture "Pieta" is kept and the tombs of the popes including St. John Paul II's and St. Peter the Apostle.
The tour ends in St. Peter's square, where you will admire Bernini's colonnade and the stunning faade of the basilica.
