your experience

Sign up for a once-in-a-lifetime experience with a VIP tour of one of the most popular attractions in Vatican City. The Vatican Museum has an astounding collection of 20,000 artifacts that have been collected over a span of 800 years. However, the artworks showcased in the Sistine Chapel are the undisputed crown jewels of the museum.

Take a walk through its hallowed interiors and greet Michelangelo’s greatest treasures in the form of the ceiling’s frescoes and the Last Judgment. Start out by looking for the Creation of Adam among the plethora of spectacular biblical depictions along the chapel’s 40-meter-long ceiling. As you near the altar, you are sure to be transfixed by the Last Judgment and its intricately detailed figures. An absolute masterpiece that has endured the test of time, the painting is still revered more than 500 years after it was painted! Also, take time to pass through the four halls of the Raphael Rooms dedicated to the High Renaissance artist’s most distinguished works. Other notable highlights include the Rotunda Room, Etruscan Museum, Gallery of Tapestries, and the Egyptian Museum.

After the tour, you can step outside and delight in the same pleasant view cherished by the popes. A delicious breakfast awaits you and your fellow visitors in the exterior setting of the Pinecone Courtyard. Once there, you cannot miss the amazing 40-meter-wide Sphere Within Sphere by Arnaldo Pomodoro and the magnificent bust of Caesar Augustus, the first Emperor of Rome.
