Take a moment to enjoy the relaxing silence around you, it is really unusual there! First, you will visit the Museums. The Vatican Museums display works from the immense collection built up by the Popes throughout the centuries, starting from with the early 16th century, when they were founded by Pope Julius II. They house some of the most renowned classical sculptures and Renaissance artworks in the world.

One of the last things you will see in the Museums is the Sistine Chapel, with its stunning ceiling decorated by Michelangelo and the Stanze di Raffaello decorated by Raphael. These are not just frescoes and paintings. Words cannot explain their beauties. They will leave you breathless.

Your last stop will be St. Peter's Basilica. It is the symbol of Christendom and its number and a famous place of pilgrimage and for its liturgical functions presidede by the Pope himself. Of course, it is not just an important place of worship.Designed principally by Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini, St. Peter's is probably the most important work of Renaissance architecture and the largest church in the world. Your guide will tell you everything about its history and design. You will be completely amazed.

At the end of the tour you will feel blessed... And not just by the religious atmosphere! If you want to get that feeling, just contact us. We will be very happy to arrange an Early Bird Private Tour of the Vatican for you!
