3 Hours Private Tour around the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Basilica with square


The Vatican Museums offers a unique collection of masterpieces. This itinerary is focused on the most important areas of the museum, beginning with the Pigna Courtyard and the Ottagono Courtyard.
From here the route takes us to the Gallery of Candelabras and to the Gallery of Tapestries, then to the Gallery of Geographical Maps. Later we will arrive to the Sistine Chapel to enjoy the wonderful paintings representing the Stories from the Old an the New Testament and Michelangelo's masterpieces (Genesis and the Last Judgement). The Basilica of St. Peter will be the last stop on our visit: one of the most important churches in the world, hosting precious works of art such as the Piety by Michelangelo and the Baldacchino by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
