Sites you’ll visit

  • Vatican Museums
  • Raphael Rooms
  • Sistine Chapel
  • Famous throughout the world, the multiple galleries and rooms can take days to visit although only just over a third of the art that Popes throughout the centuries have collected is on show to the public. The museums house an immense collection that includes some of the most important masterpieces of Renaissance art in the world along with some of the most precious Ancient Rome and Egyptian statues.
  • You will be fascinated by the Raphael Rooms, not only by their beauty as soon as your eyes feast upon the previous private pope apartments but also for the hidden political messages entwined through the fantastic frescos he left. Raphael was called to work in the Vatican when he was just 25 years old, by the Pope Julius II and from that day he was a great rival of Michelangelo, who are both considered masters of the Renaissance Age.
  • Definitely the most known work of art of all time, the frescoes by Michelangelo are considered the finest work of art ever created by Man. The iconic narration of the vault dedicaded to the Holy Creation and the Bible is a pendant of the huge wall scene (60 feet tall) just behind the altar: the “Last Judgment” with its 391 figures. The side walls welcomed Michelangelo’s creation with pre-existing stories of the Life of Jesus and Moses by Botticelli and the Renaissance masters. Despite the religious dedication, the meaning of the Sistine Chapel trascends the time and space of the Church and reveals its universal meaning for mankind.
