Our private tours of the Vatican from Civitavecchia starts with a tour of the Vatican Museum. The Vatican houses the wealthiest private collection of masterpieces, showcased in rooms with walls decorated by Raffaello. The real masterpiece, however, is next door: 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.
Our private Vatican tours from Civitavecchia end with St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest church in the world. The magnificent and breathtaking complex spans back to 4th century BC, when it was commissioned by Emperor Constantine, though the new cathedral took over 100 years and all of Italy’s greatest artists to build it. The basilica’s vast collection of art includes masterpieces by Bernini, Baldacchino and Michelangelo.
Lastly, our private Vatican tours from Civitavecchia allow for free time on your own to do as you please – visit the famous piazzas or relax in a café or trattoria before returning to dock. A meeting point with the driver for your return trip to Civitavecchia will be specified.
