Vatican city and sistine chapel tour
This tour is the best way to discover the holiest hill in town, rich with history and treasures, the lavish Vatican Museums, where Michaelangelo, Raphael and many Popes lived, the Sistine Chapel, and Saint Peter's Basilica! After the meeting with your guide, you will reach the usually packed Museum entrance, where, skipping the check-in line, you will enter the Museum through the terrace where a stunning vision of Saint Peter's dome overlooks the Vatican gardens.
In the museums you will behold the most beautiful Roman ancient statues, you will gasp at the length of the enormous Tapestry Hall, then through the Hall of the Painted Maps you will enter the Sistine Chapel whose impact in history, religion and visual arts has no equal in the world.
Michaelangelo spent most of his life here, and left his mark forever. Through a special door available only to your guide, you will reach Saint Peter's Basilica where Michaelangelo's sculpture "Pieta" is kept, and the tombs of the popes including John Paul II's, and Saint Peter the Apostle's, and a final view of the Pope's Balcony and Bernini's Colonnade Square.
Running days: everyday except Sunday, Wednesday morning and all religious events connected with the Pope's agenda and Vatican festivities: these follow a different calendar from Italy's one, in which Saint Peter's or sometimes even the Sistine Chapel may not be available.
