The Vatican Museums & St. Peter’s excursion gives you a chance to see some of the world’s finest works of art as well as outstanding architecture.
As part of a small tour (with no more than 12 people in the group), you'll experience the world-famous Vatican Museum with the chance to ask the guide any questions you may have. You’ll begin in the museum, where you’ll be able to admire all the incredible works of art on display before you reach Raphael’s rooms. These four chambers are filled with paintings by Raphael, the famous Italian Renaissance painter. These remarkable paintings show the skill and talent of one of Italy's most renowned artists. You’ll then head for the Sistine Chapel, a special site known for its astonishing ceiling made up of frescoes by Michelangelo. The final stop on the tour will be St Peter’s Basilica; this impressive piece of architecture with its vast space is an incredible sight. With Benini’s Baldacchino in the centre, towering above the congregation, and Michelangelo’s beautiful Pieta, St. Peter’s showcases some of Italy's most important works of art.
