Description

You will explore one of the largest and busiest Museums in the world including spectacular Sistine Chapel. Our exciting tour will be led by an experienced, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide.

The splendid Sistine Chapel was built during the reign of Sixtus IV, from which it takes its name. The Chapel is very rich in history. At first it was the private chapel of the popes and for centuries it has been the place where, even today, the Conclave for the election of the new Pope is held. The fame of the Sistine Chapel is due to the frescoes decorating the walls and the decoration of the vault. These frescoes are considered the absolute masterpiece of the Renaissance. The decoration of the chapel was performed in three moments that coincide with the phases of the development of Renaissance art. The most important artists of the early Renaissance including Sandro Botticelli, Domenico Ghirlandaio and Pietro Perugino frescoed the sidewalls at the end of the XVth century

Art and history

   

So worth the early walk through city streets. Got in quickly and had plenty of time to explore the great halls. Vast museum and grounds to cover but we saw most of the masterpieces. Prepare to be astonished, especially the Galleries ceiling and maps, and the Borgia Apartments frescoes. Easy access to the basilica is a welcomed bonus since the line outside goes around the square. Cheers to the most friendly and talkative guide, who left no question unanswered.

Vatican museums

   

This was our second time in the Vatican City and was by far the best way to visit the museum and basilica. Definitely worth the early wake up. We saw all the major halls and the basilica without the annoying noisy crowds and at our own pace. Congrats to our very remarkable guide for her knowledge of art and history.
