Private Guided Tours Vatican Privileged Entrances – Duration 4 hrs. from Monday to Saturday.
A car will pick you up at any time of your convenience and then transfer you to the Vatican Museum and City. Nothing compares to being lead into the Catholic state for a walking tour of the discovery of art, history and religion in the smallest state in the world. The buildings include the papal apartments of the medieval apostolic palace, embellished by hue, tint, and coloration during the Renaissance, the Sistine Chapel, the Apostolic Library, and the museums. Assembled through the centuries thanks to the artistic, dynastic, and religious ambitions of the popes, the Vatican collections today are represented in a museum with historical significance and without any rival.
Your private Vatican guide will explain to you the Candelabras Gallery. It was created in 1780 as a continuation of the Pio Clementine Museum the Dutch tapestries, a long series of tapestries woven in Brussels where you can admire cartoon’s by Master Raphael’s school. You can easily understand that the Vatican art collection was, and still is the most important and famous museum in the world. After a visit of the geographical maps and Raphael’s rooms, we finally arrive at the glorious masterpiece, The Sistine Chapel. It has recently been restored, and you can admire the beautiful Michelangelo’s Last Judgment frescoes.
With a few minutes of walking, you will arrive at St. Peter’s Basilica, with Michelangelo’s marvelous Pietà, Bernini’s wonderful and rich Baldacchino, and the charismatic tombs of the popes.
At the end of the tour, your English-speaking driver will drive you back to your hotel or any other place of your convenience.
