DESCRIPTION

Vatican Museum Tour

Uncover one of the world's most significant and famous art collections by going on a guided tour of the Vatican Museums. Accompanied by a knowledgeable guide, you will skip the lines at the museum entrance and begin your exploration by entering several beautiful galleries, including the Gallery of Tapestries, the Rotunda, and the iconic Gallery of Maps.

Each room inside the Vatican Museum is decorated with ancient statues, frescoes, and tapestries. But, of course, the most remarkable gem of the Vatican collection is not a painting on a wall; it's the entire ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. This masterpiece, 'The Last Judgment,' was painted by the renowned Renaissance artist Michelangelo Buonarotti.

The Vatican Museum tour is intentionally organized in small groups so you can have the best possible experience, and a tour guide can pay full attention to everyone's questions and needs. Feel free to ask your guide anything about the artworks you will be exploring.

After you finish exploring the Vatican Museums, visit the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture - St. Peter’s Basilica.

An Unforgettable Vatican Museum Experience

I had the great opportunity to join a tour led by Marco with my family recently, and it was an absolutely unforgettable experience. He skillfully took us through historical facts and hidden gems, making sure every moment was enriching. I highly recommend this tour for anyone seeking a perfect Vatican Museums experience – you won't be let down!

Rebecca

MUST book this Vatican Museum tour!

Our guide, Julia, was fantastic! There were about 7 of us, so it felt like a private group tour. The museum was crowded, especially in the Gallery of Maps, but Julia did a great job finding shade, keeping us interested, and explaining to us the story behind the Sistine Chapel's famous fresco. I highly recommend a guided tour of the Vatican Museum for a better experience!
