Full description
The Vatican Museums, with more than 1400 galleries, is one of the most important and largest art collections in the world. They house a variety of superb galleries, excellent Roman and Etruscan collections and plenty more.

See the Sistine Chapel through the eyes of an experienced tour guide, officially licensed by the Vatican. With this exclusive private tour, it will just be you and your own guide. This gives you the chance to ask questions and make special requests about what to see. This sanctuary boasts works by master painters like Perugino, Pinturicchio, Ghirlandaio, Rosselli, Botticelli, Signorelli, della Gatta and, of course, Michelangelo.
