We are indeed tour guides but first we are travelers. We understand there might be last minute unforeseen circumstances that might cause a change of plans. When we sat down to write our cancellation policy we decided to think to what Cancellation Policy we would like to have for ourselves for our trips.

Meet your private guide to visit one of the most beautiful museums in the world. Touring around the Vatican Museums, your private guide will help focus your attention on the most important masterpieces, explaining everything you wish to know. Spend Friday night at the museum, far from the general public and lost in the evocative atmosphere of the Roman night. 

Among the many treasures you will find within are the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of Maps, adorned with detailed Italian maps.

Walk through the Raphael Rooms, the four papal rooms famous for their frescoes painted by Raphael, one of the most important collections from the High Renaissance in Rome. Discover the Borgia Apartments, a suite of rooms in the Apostolic Palace adapted for personal use by Pope Alexander VI, adorned with wonderful paintings and frescoes.

End this incredible tour inside the Sistine Chapel, where you will see Michelangelo's famous frescoes The Creation of Adam and The Last Judgment, before heading to the Vatican Library.
