Rome Vatican tour

  • PRIVATE WALKING GUIDED TOUR 

Private customized visit of the most spectacular monuments and sights of the Vatican city, including the Vatican museums and the Basilica of St. Peter’s.

With its nine miles of art, sculpture, tapestries, maps and relics, not to mention Michelangelo’s frescos in the Sistine Chapel, it can be overwhelming. We’ve chosen the best for your three-hour visit, giving you a broad view of the collection as well as its most famous works.

Follow your guide inside the vast collection of private artwork that is the Vatican Museums.

Walk through the Gallery of the Maps and Gallery of Tapestries. Gaze at artifacts such as timeworn yet fascinating Italian maps and admire the sculptures and candelabras of the Gallery of Candelabras. Stop for photos in front of the Pigna  statue in the Pinecone Courtyard.

Pass through Raphael’s Rooms, a series of galleries that highlight the talent of the artist himself and step inside the Sistine Chapel.

Stand beneath Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam and admire The Last Judgement, his colourful mural that adorns a wall, continue to St Peter’s Basilica, the symbolic heart of the Catholic church. Learn about its history and see more Vatican art including Michelangelo’s La Pietà and Bernini’s Baldacchino.

The tour will conclude with the embrace of the immense colonnades of the square and the view of Pope’s Balcony.
