Tour Description

Discover more about this tour

Leave it to the world’s smallest country to have one of the largest museums. On this 3 hour private guided tour of the Vatican Museums, your enthusiastic guide will lead you through many of the 54 galleries to explore some of the 20,000 objects on display. Skip the lines, say a little prayer of thanks, and begin dropping your jaw inside the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica.

 

Over half a millennium old, the Vatican Museums include a vast collection of sculptures, paintings, and historical objects accumulated by popes over the centuries. Wander its galleries to discover everything form Etruscan archaeological finds to Picasso paintings. You’ll likely learn about major works including Raphael’s ‘Transfiguration’ and the ‘Laocoön’ Sculpture. The real showstopper, however, is Michelangelo’s world-famous painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Your knowledgeable guide will share the secrets behind this iconic artwork.

You’ll also wander into St. Peter’s Basilica, the world’s largest church where the Pope himself celebrates mass. It’s one of the most important places on Earth for Catholics, but religious or not, you’ll be awestruck.

    Barbara was AMAZING! She was knowledgeable, kind, and patient with my parents who tire easily and my 8 year old daughter who...acts like an 8 year old. To be honest, my daughter is generally well behaved and impressively helpful and patient when traveling with her grandparents, but some of the tours get a little boring for her. Barbara helped keep her engaged and helped keep an eye on her while I was helping my parents.
