The Vatican is known all over the world as the central governing body of the Catholic Church, our tour of the Vatican focuses on the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. After a brief historical introduction about the Vatican Museums, we will enter the Candelabra Gallery, which houses roman sculptures and frescoed ceilings. Then you will continue in the Gallery of the Tapestries, where you will stare at the beautiful tapestries of the 6th century by the Flemish artists. Next will be the extraordinary Gallery of Maps, a series of painted topographical maps of Italy each depicting a region as well as a perspective view of its most prominent city at the time. In the Sistine Chapel you will see the “Creation” and the “Last Judgment”, believed to be Michelangelo’s masterpieces in painting. Although Michelangelo’s majestic work of art draws the attention, the Chapel is also decorated with frescoes by other great artists such as Botticelli, Perugino, Ghirlandaio and Luca Signorelli, painted on the side walls. From the Sistine Chapel there is a beautiful staircase designed by Bernini leading inside the Basilica of St. Peter. Here we will show you other works by Michelangelo, such as the famous Pietà and the magnificent dome. In the massive Basilica are also located other works by Bernini, such as the Baldachin, mosaic sets and monuments erected in honor of the Popes. All of those represent the history of the papacy and the development of the Roman Church.  In St. Peter’s Basilica it is possible to visit the grave of the popes as well as to climb up to the top of the dome, from where you will surely enjoy a beautiful sight of Rome.

      Overall, it was what I expected. It was our second time going to the Vatican and this time we brought our two daughters 18 and 20. They are college students and even though the company had student discount up to age 25, they would give it to us because one of my daughters didn’t bring her student ID. They clearly looked young and they could’ve given us the student discount.

      After looking at the huge lines outside we couldn’t believe that we were admitted in instantly. If it were just for this fact it would be enough however the next few hours were brilliant with a very knowledgeable tour leader who gave us both facts and anecdotes that added considerably to the content we were seeing. Highly recommend

      Our tour guide Luca was excellent, he was very knowledgeable about the artwork within the Vatican Museums and about Michaelangelo and Raphael. The headsets allowed us to hear all the information in this very busy location. He gave us time to take photos and we didn’t feel rushed at any point. I recommend seeing the Vatican this way. You’d miss so much doing it on your own.
