The Vatican City is the world’s smallest sovereign state with one of the richest art collections in the world acquired throughout the centuries by the Popes. The Vatican Museums are one of the biggest in the world, with more than 70.000 pieces of art. It is estimated that more than 16.000 people come to visit them every day. The museums are divided into different sections, with more than 5 miles of corridors in different artistic styles: the Candelabra Gallery, the Tapestry Gallery and the Geographical Map Gallery, where you will also have glimpses of the Pope’s exquisite gardens. You will visit the world-renowned Sistine Chapel, completely decorated with frescos made by Michelangelo. Once a private chapel for the Popes, it is still used as the Conclave for Papal Elections. The visit includes the private room of Pope Julius II, completely decorated by the painter Rafael. The tour will continue inside the Basilica of St. Peter, the largest in the world, with its astonishing masterpieces of art such as the “Pietà” by Michelangelo. An expert guide will walk you through this magnificent place, revealing its many artistic nuances. The tour will end in one of the most famous squares in the world, St. Peter’s Square. You will be surrounded by Bernini’s magnificent ’embracing’ colonnade, from which you can see the window of the Pope’s private apartment.
The tour is possible every day except Sunday and the days of religious festivals.
