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.

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.

      Our tour guide was Michela. She was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. Some people draw you in because they are easy to listen to which was how it was with Michela. Obviously there were many people at the Vatican but the group moved around easily without rushing. This was our first visit to Rome and one made especially memorable due to the quality of the information shared during this experience. Thank you to Michela
