Full description
The Vatican is especially beautiful at night, as you will see throughout this tour. Start at St. Peter's Square and explore the mysterious stories, plans, and projects of the popes and world-famous architects. You'll learn about why St. Peter's Basilica is actually at this location, and will also learn the story of the Obelisk.

You will discover why thousands of people wait in the queues every day to admire this magnificent structure from the inside and much more whilst exploring. Following that, you'll continue in the direction of the Vatican Museums.

Once there, your focus will be on the small and mostly unknown subtleties which will help you to really understand the big picture. You'll learn about Michelangelo and his contribution to the Sistine Chapel, taking a closer look at this unique chapel and marveling at its architecture and art.
