Full description
The tour starts with the Vatican Museums, where since 1503 the pontiffs have collected all the pieces of art throughout several years.

Your tour begins in the Pius V's Room, followed by the Sobieskj Room, which is the Immaculate Conceptions' room. Finally you'll arrive to Raffaello's Rooms. These four rooms house the frescoes by the master painter D'Urbino, started in 1508.

You will then visit the Borgia's family rich apartments, who were known for their power among society and ultimately their violence. Finally you’ll arrive to the famous Sistine Chapel. This chapel has been entirely painted by Michelangelo and represents a spectacular place that you would never want to leave. Your tour will carry on to Saint Peter's basilica by passing in front of the famous Porta Santa. Saint Peter's was built between 1506 and 1626, and is an interminable construction site!
