Start in the Pinecone Courtyard where you can admire Apollo, the Belvedere Torso, and other masterpieces as you proceed to the tapestry galleries. Your guide knows all the best sights in this maze-like museum, so you won't waste any time. Marvel at the frescoed maps made by Raphael and his students as you head toward Michelangelo's masterpiece, the monumental Sistine Chapel. See more of Michelangelo's work in St. Peter's Basilica as well as countless other treasures. You can wander these hallowed halls with your expert guide until 4:15, when you'll head back to the air-conditioned minibus and make your way back to the port.
