More details about the guided tour

If you are fascinated by modern monuments by the Christian religion you cannot miss the tour of St. Peter’s Basilicaand the Vatican Museums. The tour is adaptable to your needs and will make you live the essential experience of the Vatican with a short 3-hour tour, which includes a visit to the Vatican Museums and its countless collections scattered in galleries and old papal apartments, where we will be able to admire works of art from every period, such as the Belvedere Torso, the Laocoon, Raphael’s Rooms and Michelangelo’s masterpieces in the Sistine Chapel.

Our tour will continue with a visit to St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican, a symbol of the Catholic religion and the largest church in the world, so much so that it can contain (ideally) all the world’s Catholic churches inside. Inside this Renaissance Basilica we will talk about its history and will discover the masterpieces inside such as: The Pietà by Michelangelo, the Baldacchino of San Pietro and the many tombs of the popes.

We will also visit the Vatican Grottoes where it will be possible to admire the Sepulchre of St. Peter, the first pope of the Christian religion, but also the remains of the Paleochristian Basilica built by the Emperor Constantine on the Vatican hill, where the apostle Peter was buried. Our tour will end in the scenic Saint Peter’s Square, where you can admire a splendid view of Via della Conciliazione and Castel Sant’Angelo.

The guided tour can be extended to 6 hours and so we will have the opportunity to visit and admire many more monuments and works of art between the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s, as well as visit Castel Sant’Angelo which was the fortress of the popes for centuries, and that can be reached by walking the Passetto di Borgo, a wall with a walkway that connects the Vatican Palaces and St. Peter’s Basilica with the Pope’s fort.
