Michelangelo Buonarroti started to work in Rome in 1496 when he was 21 years old and stayed in Rome for almost all his life.

The Michelangelo Buonarroti Masterpieces Tour in Rome is designed for people who love this great artist, and it is a half day tour around Rome and includes the “Basilica of St. Peter in Vatican City” where you can see the first Roman works of “Michelangelo”, the “Pietà” which is the representation of the moment of the deposition of Jesus Christ after the “Crucifixion” and on the lap of his mother the Virgin Mary. This sculpture is considered the greatest and most famous sculpture made by Michelangelo during his time in Rome. ...

The Michelangelo Buonarroti Masterpieces Tour in Rome will bring you to see another masterpiece of this great artist, “the Moses”, and includes the visit of the “Church of St. Peter in Chains”. “The Moses” was the main of the forty statues planned for the tomb of Pope Julius II and the original plan was to put this great tomb inside the “Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican” but after the death of the Pope Julius II the plan changed: “The Moses” was the only completed statue so, it was placed inside the church of “St. Peter in Chain” because Julius II was the patron of the church.

Included in the Michelangelo Buonarroti Masterpieces Tour in Rome there is the visit of “Church of St. Mary Above Minerva” where you can see one of the lesser-known works of “Michelangelo” such as “The Christ Carrying the Cross”. The reason why this great sculpture of “Michelangelo” is not so famous to the great public is just because before the end of the work, a small crack in the marble made the sculpture unsaleable to the customer.

The Michelangelo Buonarroti Masterpieces Tour in Rome will end on the “Capitoline Hill”, one of the seven historical hills of Rome, and with a visit of the “Capitol Square”, where you can admire Michelangelo’s skills as an outstanding architect. In fact, in 1538 “Michelangelo” was nominated architect in charge for the restyling of the square in front of the oldest Roman museum, “The Capitoline Museum”. He designed the geometrical line of the square and moved “the Equestrian Statue of Marco Aurelio” from the original place in front of “St. John in Lateran” to the center of “Capitol Square”. In addition, he built a new palace in front of the building where the capitol museum was situated: the “New Palace”, which is an exact copy of the old one.
