Vatican Museums & St. Peter's Basilica


Join me in discovering the Vatican, the smallest country in the World but the richest in terms of works of art.
The Vatican Museums hosts one of the most important collections of Greek and Roman art, we will see the Belvedere's Apollo and the Laocoon considered as iconic pieces of ancient art. I will tell you about the meaning and insights of Michelangelo's work on the Sistine Chapel, what there is more famous in art? And then we will shed some light into the relationship in between Michelangelo and Raphael, the two genius of the Renaissance.

By skipping the busy entrance lines I will guide you through centuries of art and history sharing with you all of the information that only a local guide with almost 20 years experience can provide you with. Our tour will reach its apex when we will enter St. Peter's Basilica, the largest Church of Christendom.

A Recent Review of this tour

Back in Rome and Silvia once again took us on another fabulous tour! This time it was the Vatican and Sistine Chapel! This is definitely not an easy tour to navigate with all of the thousands of people that visit each day, but Silvia does it with a smile and grace. She keeps it light and entertaining and is sure to get you a front row wt all of the highlights. She also knows everyone inside and is greeted by all of the guards with a smile! That alone tells you about her character and how awesome she is!
