Let us lead you to the heart of the Christian world
A qualiﬁed expert guide will lead you through the centuries and highlight the masterpieces that no visitor to Rome should ever miss. The treasure trove you see today originated over ﬁve hundred years ago, as a result of the humanist popes’ passion for accumulating and commissioning artworks. Over 2,000 rooms display items that range from Egyptian sarcophagi to Flemish tapestries, from Classical antiquities to ethnographic objects, from Etruscan artifacts to Renaissance fresco paintings.
Nestled among these marvels lies the world-famous Sistine chapel. You will admire Michelangelo’s stunning frescoes among which are two of his most well-loved masterpieces: the Last Judgment and the Creation of Adam. Your guide will animate your visit by narrating the stories behind the famous works that grace these ancient walls and the characters that inspired them. Finally the guided tour will lead you to St. Peter’s Basilica, where the impact of Michelangelo’s Pietà cannot fail to move and the colossal dome to impress every visitor to the heart of the Roman Catholic Church.
Chance to access the Museum before opening to avoid the crowds is available.
