tour of the Vatican Museums and Saint Peter's Basilica
will allow you to discover the entire history and art of the museums
and part of the Vatican City with our guide.
One of our coaches will take you from Piazza San Bernardo to the
entrance of the Vatican Museums.
Upon arrival, you will visit the Vatican Museums and Galleries
accompanied by our guide. Beginning at the ultra-modern
entrance erected to improve services during the 2000 Jubilee, the
tour will include the Gallery of Chandeliers, the Gallery of Maps,
the Gallery of Tapestries and much more. The most important work,
the Sistine Chapel, will be visited at the end
of the tour where our guide will tell you about the history and
the secrets surrounding the Sistine Chapel’s frescoes, painted
by Michelangelo. Passing inside the Vatican Museums
we will arrive into the Basilica of Saint Peter, commonly called
Saint Peter's Basilica, is one of four major basilicas
of Rome. It is the most prominent building inside the Vatican City
and built on the ruins of Old Saint Peter's Basilica. On wednesday,
due to the Papal Audience, the church of St. Peter will be visited
only from outside.
Due to extremely high visitor numbers, extended queues at the museum
entrance may occur during peak season.
