V.I.P. Vatican Tour
Vatican Tour before opening to the general public
Over five centuries a great number of popes contributed to put together one of the largest collections of art in the world, in a record museum. Part of the collection is exhibited in the three famous galleries of the candelabras, tapestries and geographical maps, which lead to the Sistine Chapel.
In the geography of the Vatican Museums all roads lead to the Sistine Chapel. This is the building where the Cardinals up to this very day still elect the Pope, voting before the Last Judgment and under the vault with the creation of Adam which was frescoed by Michelangelo.
Saint Peter’s Basilica (skip the line)
The Vatican tour will take you inside the largest church in the world, built on the tomb of the Prince of the Apostles, St. Peter. The greatest geniuses of the Renaissance and of the Baroque have contributed to make it a unique building that houses the only statue that bears Michelangelo’s signature, the Pietà.
