You will skip the line with your small group of no more than 12 people, and wlill be free to stroll through the corridors to view the world’s largest private art collection, once intended exclusively for the Pope. As your expert guide entertains you with tales of the Vatican power and intrigue, you’ll feel the Renaissance works of art come to life. Amble through Raphael’s Rooms, the four interconnecting chambers adorned with paintings by Raphael and his pupils, before visiting the breathtakingly beautiful Sistine Chapel, which is considered the Pope’s home chapel. Walk through this sacred Vatican site to see Michelangelo’s astounding frescoes, The Creation of Adam and The Last Judgment.
