What to expect

Enjoy an evening of art, history and religion at the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel – one of Rome’s A-list attractions. Follow your local guide on this flexible private tour and start exploring a priceless collection of over 20,000 works of art. Valentina, one of our local guides, says, ‘Delve beyond the paintbrush to understand the meaning of hidden symbols, facial expressions, ghostly strokes, size and colours of this world-class art collection.’

Skip the line into the Vatican Museums, listening to expert background commentary as you wander through the labyrinth of statues, paintings, and sculptures. It’s a red carpet for top Italian artists from Raphael and Bellini to Leonardo. ‘Must-see spots inside include the Gallery of Tapestries where each stitch tells a story, the Gallery of Candelabra – with impressive marble statues – not to mention the iconic spiral staircase’, says local guide Valentina.

Up next is the Sistine Chapel. Lift your gaze to the precious frescoes that adorn the ceiling. ‘Stand in awe of masterpieces including the Last Judgement, Creation of Adam and other scenes from the Book of Genesis – the ceiling took Michelangelo six years to complete’, Valentina adds. Your tour comes to an end at St. Peter’s Square, hub of the Eternal City, where you can admire the basilica in the evening glow.
