What to expect

The top attractions in Rome certainly include the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica.

A guided tour is recommended to make this an unforgettable moment. It has been calculated that if you contemplate just a minute in front of each work of art, it would take 14 years to look at the whole collection of the Vatican museums.

The tour aims at showing you the best of these treasures in three hours. Your guide will tell you extraordinary stories about the unique architecture and mysterious politics of the Vatican. Marvel at incredible works of art, at the largest fresco in world history and understand the connections between art, culture and history in an easy and entertaining way.

Then, explore the largest church in the world, St. Peter's Basilica. Here, too, you will not be able to cease to be amazed at what there is to learn about this church. After the tour, you have the opportunity to climb the dome of St. Peter's Basilica on your own and enjoy a breathtaking view of the city.

The highlights of this tour include: the Sistine Chapel with the frescoes by Michelangelo, the Raphaelian Rooms, the Gallery of Tapestries, the Maps and St. Peter's Basilica.
