I will accompany you in the visit of one of the world's most visited sites. Together will explore the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel, and going from room to room, you will get to discover such popular highlights of the Museum as the Greek Cross Hall, Gallery of Statues and the Hall of Busts and the Raphael Rooms, adorned by Raphael and his students. You will admire all the museum's treasures: tapestries, paintings and sculptures by Renaissance greats such as Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio, Bernini.
Our visit culminates at the Sistine Chapel, the crown jewel of the Vatican, where you will get to see two of the world's most famous frescos; The Creation of Adam on the ceiling above you and The Last Judgment on the wall, both painted by the Master of Rinascimento: Michelangelo.
The tour will end in St. Peter's Basilica with it's famous Baldacchino made by Bernini and the marvelous Pieta, one of the very first works from Michelangelo.

Loved Elisa and this VIP Vatican tour. From the moment we were picked up in the luxury van to her big smile and special access inside. I would not recommend navigating the Vatican alone with the insane crowds and complex history. Treat yourself to her deep knowledge, charm, humor and accommodating personality. We had both sets of parents with us and she navigated our different generations and religious backgrounds perfectly. She cares deeply, is a true professional and will put you at ease. Thank U Elisa!
