Our Vatican Tour will take your family through the most famous and impressive art museum in Italy. The Vatican is known throughout the world to be the home of the Pope and also as a museum containing a collection of paintings and art from some of history’s most famous Italian artists – Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo, and Caravaggio, just to name a few.
"Thank you for organising the tour with Simona. She was a great guide and catered the tour well for the children. She delivered the tour well and explained points simply and through visual aids which was really useful for us and the children. Please pass on our thanks to Simona and also to you for organising the tour and all other aspects at such short notice". Ritu Parti, -United Kingdom
On our tour you’ll not only see this impressive collection but you will also have access through a special shortcut passage from the Sistine Chapel to the Basilica of St. Peter’s. Here you may see the Swiss Guards protecting the entrance to the holy staircase of the previous Pope’s residence.
Currently the Pope lives in an apartment that is separate from the museum and church that is not possible to be seen by the general public. At the old apartments he uses this area instead for meetings with ambassadors and other special dignitaries of the world
The itinerary of our Vatican Tour will show you the most famous and interesting highlights of the Vatican museums (including the courtyard with the giant pinecone!), the Rooms of Raphael, Michelangelo’s famous Sistine Chapel ceiling and sculpture of the Pietà, and St. Peter's Basilica
