Early Breakfast, Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter Basilica
Visitors have the possibility to enter the Museums at 7. 15 am and enjoy an American buffet breakfast. Having finished breakfast the visitors will have the opportunity to enter the Museums and Sistine Chapel before the official opening time.
This tour itinerary is focused on the most important areas of the museum, beginning with the Pigna Courtyard and the Ottagono Courtyard.
We arrive to the Sistine Chapel, Michelangelo's masterpiece seen in the decoration of the ceiling and on the extraordinary depiction of the Last Judgement. The Basilica of St. Peter will be the last stop on our visit: one of the most ancient churches in the world. Today the church is a treasure trove of precious works of art such as the Pietà by Michelangelo and the St. Peter's Baldachin by Bernini.
If you prefer at the end of the tour I can leave you at the entrance of the St Peter Dome and you can climb it by yourself!
