Vatican City Tour

A state, a museum, the heart of Christianity, and a lot more: Vatican City Tour

The Vatican is a state; albeit, the smallest state in the world. The Vatican is a museum; it houses some of the most magnificent examples of Western Classical Art. From the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, to the bronze statue of Hercules, the stunning frescoes and the ravishing tapestries, to the Round Room, a veritable masterpiece of neoclassical architecture. The Vatican is the heart of Christianity; it’s where the pope lives and its houses the offices of the committees and congregations that assist the Church. It’s an unforgettable and tangible experience of the religion. The Vatican is more than just a place; it’s a life-changing experience.

The Vatican museums are home to some of the most awe-inspiring examples of Western Classical art. Let our experienced guide take you through the treasures of Vatican, the famous Sistine Chapel, and the undisputed beauty of St. Peter’s Basilica.

Inspired by the Pantheon, the Round Room is a masterpiece of neoclassical architecture, designed with light in mind. The sunlight streaming through the oculus dances across 3rd century mosaic floors, taken from the Otricoli baths in Umbria, highlights the bronze statue of Hercules, and darts into recesses to highlight ancient statuary. Follow the light to the Belvedere Courtyard; surrounded by the Vatican museums, it’s a lovely proof that architecture is as much a work of art as the masterpieces the buildings house.
