Our Vatican tour starts at the Vatican Museums, an artistic sanctuary that holds an impressive collection of masterpieces gathered by popes over centuries. Boasting over 70,000 works, it’s a vast maze of galleries, hallways, and chapels. An absolute blessing to your eyes.
Walking through the Gallery of Maps and the renowned Raphael Rooms, visitors marvel at the exquisite art depicting historic battles, biblical scenes, and Renaissance aesthetics. However, it's the Sistine Chapel that steals the spotlight. Gazing up at Michelangelo's world-renowned ceiling, "The Last Judgment" and "The Creation of Adam," is an indescribable experience. The wonder of these pieces, combined with the chapel’s solemnity, provides a serene, ethereal atmosphere that is truly spellbinding.
Next, we proceed to the massive St. Peter's Basilica, the heart of Catholicism. The basilica is an architectural masterpiece, embodying the artistic styles of great Renaissance artists. The entrance alone, with its majestic colonnades designed by Bernini, is a sight to behold
Once inside, the size and splendor of St. Peter's Basilica are breathtaking. Beneath the grand dome, which you can climb for a panoramic view of Rome, lies the magnificent "Pietà," a sculptural masterpiece by Michelangelo. The tomb of St. Peter, located in the crypt, draws countless visitors, as does the bronze canopy, "Baldachin," by Bernini. The elaborate interior embellishments, from mosaics to gilded decorations, are an homage to the phenomenal artists of the past
However, the “pièce de résistance”, the epitome of this tour is the climb to the top of St. Peter’s Dome. Designed primarily by Michelangelo, the dome is an architectural marvel. The journey to the top can be taxing, with over 500 steps to conquer, but the reward at the end is priceless: a breathtaking panorama of Rome, stretching to the city's outskirts and beyond.
This walking tour offers an insight into the wonders of the past of Roman architecture, art and history, and we offer the perfect opportunity with our tour package
