Your English speaking driver will welcome you at your hotel in the city centre or any other place as previously arranged and transfer you to the Vatican Museum. Once there you will meet your Official Licensed guide to start your 3 hours private tour through the Vatican collections brought together during the centuries thanks to the artistic, creative and religious motivation of the Popes, that today represents a museum without any rival and with historical importance.
You will see the papal apartments of the medieval apostolic palace embellished by the Renaissance time frescoes, the Apostolic Library, the Geographical maps and Raphael rooms and more before you finally arrive at the glorious moment: The Sistine Chapel, restored in recent times, where you can admire the beautiful Michelangelo’s last judgment frescoes. Carry on a short walk you will arrive to St. Peter’s Basilica, with his marvellous Michelangelo’s Pietà, Bernini’s astonishing and rich Baldacchino and the interesting tombs of the Popes.
