Our guide was great, approachable and very knowledgeable. The tour was let down by the huge amounts of people! The experience would have been a lot better if visitor numbers were restricted to allow those inside room to look around and experience the Vatican wonders. The Sistine Chapel was laughable with so many people crammed into it. What a shame. It wasn't just the Vatican though, the Colosseum etc were all the same.

Itinerary

Before starting this walk inside the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel, you will be welcomed by our specialized guide. He or she will be your point of reference for this journey into the world of Art and will also ensure that all hygiene and health regulations are respected by the small group of tour participants for everyone's safety.

Itinerary

Once the group is assembled, thanks to the priority entrance ticket, there will be no waiting. We will cross the threshold immediately to begin this fantastic tour together!
Inside the Vatican Museums, endless works of art await us as our dedicated guide leads the way. We will arrive at the Cortile della Pigna, a vast open space of 300 square metres adjacent to the museum, which takes its name from the large pine cone-shaped statue at its centre. And a little later, you'll be able to feast your eyes on the Roman and Greek artworks in the Museo Pio Clementino, arranged in 12 rooms!

You will then visit the Gallery of Tapestries and the sumptuous Gallery of Maps, which displays the landscapes and thus the geographical metamorphosis our country has undergone over the centuries. You will then enter the Borgia Apartment, commissioned by Pope Alexander VI and consisting of six rooms in which the coat of arms of the powerful family stands out. Finally, you will reach the marvellous Raphael Rooms, frescoed by the great painter and his pupils; you will also admire one of his most famous paintings, the "School of Athens".

You will reach the Sistine Chapel, Michelangelo's best-known masterpiece and a true jewel of universal art. When you raise your eyes, you will find yourself immersed in a whirlwind of colours and unique representations that you can contemplate. Its beauty will leave you speechless, which is a good thing since the Conclave is held here and no talking is allowed inside. Don't worry, your guide will have previously provided you with all the information you need to fully understand this masterpiece.

If you love the combination of art, history, and beauty, the Vatican Museums are a special place to delight your eyes. Join us on this guided walk that will make you experience unique sensations!
