Vatican Tour extended

An extended visit to one of the largest museums in the world, in the unique setting of the Vatican. Get ready to discover Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s masterpieces, the Baroque wonders of Saint Peter’s Basilica and more.

Sistine Chapel, Vatican Tour extended

The extended Vatican tour is an even more in-depth exploration of one of the most impressive art collections in the world, located in the foreign state – and yet nestled in the centre of Rome – of the Vatican. We’ll start with a comprehensive tour of the Classical Art sections, before moving on to the Raphael Rooms (the ancient papal apartment decorated by Raphael and his school) or the Pinacoteca (art gallery with works by Raphael, Leonardo and Caravaggio). Of course we’ll see and learn about the Sistine Chapel, with its 600 sq mt frescoed ceiling and the breathtaking Last Judgement by Michelangelo. In addition to its artistic value, this is also the place where the Conclave elects a new Pope. Up next is the Gallery of Tapestries, the painted topographical maps and St Peter’s Basilica, with Michelangelo’s Pieta and Bernini’s baroque masterpieces.

The tour does not include a visit to the dome of St Peter’s, as it requires a separate ticket which can’t be booked in advance, and visiting hours are limited. However you have the option of going up yourself at the end of the tour; just let me know in advance and I’ll plan our visit accordingly.
