What to expect

On this live tour from home, Walks, along with an expert Vatican guide will lay the foundation for the building of the Sistine Chapel, the works of arts surrounding the walls which lead up to the high altar and its incomparable ceiling - Michelangelo’s contribution. The artist executed themes of Christian cosmology and tirelessly worked for years to station the divine lineage of the Popes.

Over the hour, your guide will share the secrets and stories of their life working within the Vatican Museums - divulging what they have come to learn in their studies and share often overlooked articles of interest about the Sistine Chapel.

Swinging the conversation to modern times, hear the tale of how a new Pope is elected, the major role the Sistine Chapel plays in this convocation and what rituals are executed as the Cardinals are sequestered within the Sistine Chapel’s walls until a new leader has been divinely appointed.
