The Vatican, considered a state of itself in relation to the Italian State, has always been the Pope’s residence.

For Rome, the heart of the Catholic Church, it is a very important place, as important as it should be for every tourist who comes to visit this beautiful city.
The interior of the Vatican is a treasure of a whole of beauty and history to be discovered step by step: from the Museum of Pio-Clementino to the Gallery of the Candelabra, up to that of the Tapestries and that of the Geographical Maps; the feeling of amazement begins to grow until reaching its peak in the Sistine Chapel.

SKIP THE LINE VATICAN MUSEUMS, ST. PETER'S BASILICA & SISTINE CHAPEL - PRIVATE TOUR

Begins an exciting journey through the art and history of religion, after visiting the different Galleries you will arrive to the stunning Sistine Chapel, built by Pope Sixtus IV between 1475 and 1483.
Twenty-five years after construction, the nephew of Sixtus IV, Pope Julius II, hired Michelangelo to painting what in the future would become a Renaissance masterpiece showing scenes taken from the book of Genesis.

Twenty-five years later Michelangelo returned to paint the Last Judgment, completed in 1541.

Another point of splendor is the Basilica of San Pietro, which “governs” the Vatican and is considered the most beautiful basilica in the world and below which is the tomb of St. Peter.

Adjacent to all these monuments with the splendor not commentable in words there is a second Basilica, completed after a century and containing the famous Pietà by Michelangelo, the Baldacchino by Bernini, the rich Baroque decoration, all works of very famous and important artists.

The Vatican Museums are a place to be discovered: for those who have seen it with their own eyes it is difficult to describe it in words and describe its essence to make it clear to those who have never had the opportunity to visit them.
