Description: 

Be one of the select few people that gets to visit a part of the Vatican Museum that’s usually closed off to the general public in this exclusive group tour of St Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican’s finest treasures.

Enjoy the sights of St. Peter’s Basilica and Square as part of a group

Worried you won’t be able to hear your guide and you’ll miss the key information about a beautiful piece of art or architecture? That won’t be the case here as you’re in a group with a friendly and knowledgeable guide who will explain everything you need to know about the treasures of the Vatican museums. You’ll start off by visiting the biggest church in the world, St. Peter’s Basilica, and the square where thousands of people congregate every week to see the head of the Catholic Church give his blessings.

See some of the world’s most precious art in this exclusive tour of the Vatican Museums

After enjoying the magic of beautiful St. Peter’s Square, your guided tour will head into the Vatican Museums – one of the richest collects of art, sculpture, and architecture in the world. Be amazed by Michelangelo’s frescoes which adorn the walls and the roofs of the Sistine Chapel. Some of the most iconic to look out for are the Creation of Adam and The Final Judgment.

Visit a part of the Vatican City that most of the general public never get to see

One of the very few cons of the Sistine Chapel is that since its one of the most impressive artistic masterpieces in the world, it can get quite crowded. However, that’s certainly not the case when it comes to the final part of your trip. The spiralled Bramante Staircase is decorated with columns and ends in a fantastic view. It was used in the 16th century for Renaissance Popes to reach their quarters without having to disembark their carriages. This is undoubtedly the highlight of this exclusive Vatican tour.
