Why Travelers Choose This Tour
What To Expect
Design your own itinerary and enjoy highlights such as Raphael’s Rooms, a series of four connecting rooms adorned with Renaissance works by Raphael and his students, the Pinacoteca Gallery, and the Etruscan Museum.
Most explorations of the Vatican Museums end at the crown jewel, the Sistine Chapel, a particularly sacred site, as it’s where new popes are elected. Of course, you’re there to see Michelangelo’s legendary frescoes, The Creation of Adam on the ceiling and The Last Judgment on on the wall.
If you’d prefer to explore the Vatican Museums with a knowledgeable guide instead of on your own, upgrade when booking to include a tour limited to 20 people. You’ll see the highlights of the complex, including the Sistine Chapel, as well as neighboring St Peter’s Basilica, one of the world’s largest churches and home to more Renaissance works. From your guide, hear about the history of the Vatican, from art to power to treachery.
