Continue your day after a light lunch at the stunning Vatican Museums and its Hidden Gems. Skip the line and enter directly to enjoy some of the world's most renowned masterpieces produced by Michelangelo, Raphael, Caravaggio, Leonardo da Vinci, and visit some hidden off-the-beaten-track rooms. Leave the crowd behind and pass the gatekeeper to privately enter the Room of the Animals. Enter the real hidden gem of the Vatican - the Cabinet of the Masks - a little room with a fantastic view of the city containing precious sculptures and mosaics. Marvel at Michelangelo's frescoes in the Sistine Chapel and continue your visit entering the famous St. Peter's Basilica. We will end the tour in the charming St. Peter Square.

A Recent Review of this tour

Marta was extremely knowledgable in Roman history, architecture and art history. She gave us great information, we saw alot in 7 hrs and she was able to get us into a few extra places in the Vatican! We learned so much even though I had been in Rome before. She brought along a book that had overlays of the ancient ruins with the way those ruins looked in Ancient times. It really added to being able to visualize what we were seeing. We HIGHLY recommend Marta as a tour guide! She was great. Thanks!!!
