This Vatican private tour starts with a tour of the Vatican Museum. As you will take notice in your private tour The Vatican houses the wealthiest privately-owned collection of masterpieces, showcased in rooms with walls decorated by Raffaello. The real masterpiece is Michelangelo’s painting of the Sistine Chapel, which unexpectedly revolutionized the world’s idea of art. The chapel is still shaping the future of the Papacy: this is where the cardinals lock themselves in to elect a new Pope after the former one has passed away.
Your Vatican tour’s last stop is inside St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest church in the world. Commissioned by emperor Constantine, the magnificent and breathtaking St. Peter’s Basilica spans back to 4th century BC, though the new cathedral took over 100 years and all of Italy’s greatest artists to build it. The basilica’s collection of art includes masterpieces by Bernini, Baldacchino and Michelangelo.
