Itinerary Description

Book our private guided tour to experience the marvels of the Vatican City! It is estimated that if you spent 30 seconds in front of every item in the Vatican museums, it would take you approximately 6 years! So join us and let our experienced guides take you through the highlights.

The tour starts in the Vatican Museums, in the Belvedere Courtyard, the Gallery of the Maps, Gallery of the Tapestries, the Rooms of Raphael, and finally culminating in the magnificent Sistine Chapel. Your guide will make you discover the 9 scenes of the Book of Genesis and the Last Judgement painted by Michelangelo on the ceiling and back wall of the Chapel.

Your tour will end at entrance of the St Peter’s Basilica where your guide will share his knowledge about its highlights such as Michelangelo's Pietà and the magnificent dome, the Baldacchino by Bernini, the Holy Altar as well as other monuments of artistic importance. You may choose to visit the Basilica, the dome, as well as the tombs of the Popes underneath the church, on your own, since no tour guide is allowed to speak inside the Basilica.

You may see many sites in Rome, but none will leave you with such a feeling of awe as the majesty and grandeur of the Sistine Chapel and the world’s largest Catholic Church St. Peter’s Basilica.
