Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
Ruled by the Pope, Vatican City is the smallest country in the world. Its most famous cultural and religious sites are the magnificent St. Peter’s Basilica, the incredibly stunning Sistine Chapel, and the Vatican Museums, a collection of some of the greatest works of art in the world. The Sistine Chapel is renowned for its ceiling, which was painted by the erstwhile Italian artist, Michelangelo. The iconic fresco, The Creation of Adam forms the centerpiece of the ceiling.
The St. Peter’s Basilica is often considered the holiest Catholic shrine in the world and is the largest church in the world. Standing at nearly 140m in height, the colossal dome can be seen throughout the Vatican. The St. Peter’s Square is iconic for its symmetry.
Your tour will begin with a spread of authentic Italian cuisine inside the Vatican Museums. Since you will be given an early entry, no other tour groups will be around for the next 1.5 hours; you can enjoy your food and tour of this striking museum in peace. The last gallery of the museum is the astounding Sistine Chapel, renowned for its ceiling. After seeing countless imitations of this legendary painting, witnessing the masterpiece in person is an ethereal experience. The incredible detail and array of colors used on the Sistine Chapel ceiling are extraordinary, and its iconic status is thoroughly warranted.
Next on the itinerary is a visit to the world-famous St. Peter’s Square and St. Peter’s Basilica. The towering colonnades with the Basilica at their helm and the towering Egyptian obelisk at the center make for a stunning sight. The main facade of the St. Peter’s Basilica is grandiose. The massive dome at the top with fourteen statues is an incredible sight, and the monument is a worthy crown to the massive St. Peter’s Square. The view of the Basilica from the Square is something you would have seen portrayed on magazines and souvenirs. Witnessing it in person, however, is guaranteed to take your breath away. With a skip the line entry, you can go past the people waiting to get in and get a detailed tour of the church. Your guide will detail on all the eye-catching interiors, and you can see some of Michelangelo’s notable works of art inside.
