Summary of The Day: Take a solemn retreat from the excitement of Rome for a relaxing and enlightening journey into the Vatican City to explore the Vatican Gardens, Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica.
After meeting your local guide at Caffe Vaticano we'll take stroll through the peaceful Vatican Gardens, an oasis of tranquility in the heart of the Vatican City, decorated with idyllic fountains, sculptures and springs where very few people ever venture. Let your troubles wash away on a relaxing tour of this soothing garden.
From here we'll take an enriching tour of the world-renowned Vatican Museums, home to fifty-four different galleries including four statue museums: Museo Pio-Clementino, Museo Chiaramonti, Museo Gregoriano Etrusco and Museo Gregoriano Egiziano, home to some of the most famous works of art in the world, by Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Raphael and Giotto, to name just a few. Prepare to be amazed at the vast collection of divine works of art, an enriching experience for any art lover.
Exclusively to this tour is a visit to the Bramante Staircase, a section of the Museums closed to the general public. Thanks to our partnership with the Vatican we are able to let our customers enjoy this fascinating structure completely gratis.
Boasting granite Doric columns and a herringbone patterned floor, the Bramante Staircase was designed to allow people and animals to go up and down without interruption, but, above all, to permit Pope Julius II to enter his private rooms without alighting from his carriage.
Before departing the museums we will enter the 54th gallery: the famed Sistine Chapel. Completed around 1483, the Sistine Chapel is arguably the most famous chapel in the world. View many of the most famous frescoes, including the The Last Judgement by Michelangelo. Not only does the Sistine Chapel hold some of the world's most precious works of art, it is still used for religious purposes such as the Papal conclave, the process through which a new Pope is chosen.
Last but not least, we'll explore St. Peter's Basilica, a popular pilgrimage site and a shining example of Renaissance architecture.
