Full description
Your wheelchair-friendly tour will begin with you admiring antique statues such as the Laocoonte and the Apollo Belvedere, as well as mosaics from ancient Roman villas. You will travel through the Gallery of Maps, which dates back to the 16th century, before discovering the secrets of the Sistine Chapel which were hidden so well by Michelangelo. The frescoes are stunning, but the meanings are perhaps even more important. Michelangelo’s depictions are about much more than just beauty.

Afterwards, your tour continues to the interior of St. Peter's Basilica and St. Peter's Square. This is the site where the faithful wait for white smoke to appear from the chimney signifying the election of a new pope, and also for the papal benediction, Urbi et Orbi.

You'll hear stories about the Vatican’s history, including intrigues and conspiracies in the papal court, displays of power, and the status and wealth of many popes. You’ll also hear about modest popes who wanted nothing more than the opportunity for contemplation and a return of the church to original Christian ideals.
