Full description
Explore the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica in a truly personal way. Stroll the well-walked corridors  with an experienced and licensed guide, on a comprehensive 3-hour walking tour. Discover all the secrets of your favourite Renaissance artists and Baroque Popes, and ask your guide all the questions you've always wanted to know the answers to.

​Raphael, Perugino, Botticelli and Pinturicchio are just some of the finest Italian painters you meet on your tour between the halls of the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel. Reach the chapel to admire the infamous Giudizio Universale, Michelangelo’s masterpiece. Enter the magnificent Basilica of Saint Peter, where your guide will share the secrets behind the Burial of Saint Peter, Bernini’s Baldacchino and Michelangelo’s Pietà.

 ​As you leave the church, enter into Saint Peter’s Square, to be surrounded by stunning statues of the Apostles, Saints and Martires dominating the façade of the basilica and Bernini’s Colonnato.
