Full description
Enjoy the highlights of the Vatican Museums as well as the remarkable Sistine Chapel in its entirety with this special small group tour.

The Vatican Museums are some of the most important museums in the world. The Vatican has a superb gallery, excellent Roman and Etruscan collections, and plenty more. Be sure not to miss the apartments that were decorated by Raphael - you'll want to come back the next day to take it all in again!

The highlight of the visit to the museums is the The Sistine Chapel, known for Michelangelo's two most famous masterpieces: the ceiling, depicting numerous scenes from the Old Testament, such as the moment of Creation, together with various sybils and prophets; and the Last Judgement, occupying the entire wall behind the altar. While you're there, don't forget to look at the other frescoes by Botticelli, Ghirlandaio and others.
