Full description
The tour starts with a visit through the restricted areas of the Vatican Museum with your expert guide. Here, learn about the history of the Vatican and how it has, and still continues to shape the course of history.

At the Museum, walk along the Bramante Staircase, a stunning 16th century wonder that’s curiously shaped like the double-helix of DNA. Admire the mosaics from the Villa of Emperor Hadrian in the Cabinet of Masks and the enchanting frescoes of Fra Angelico in the Niccoline Chapel.

Next, continue on to your private tour of the Sistine Chapel, where only you and your small group will be allowed in. Experience the peaceful serenity of the Sistine Chapel on this exclusive tour, and relax and enjoy this cultural treasure in peace. This is a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to marvel at the wonder of Michelangelo’s masterful Creation of Adam, in a quiet Sistine Chapel with no crowds.
