Full description

Once at the meeting point, meet your guide who will lead you inside the Vatican Museums. Skip the line to the museum with priority access. Stroll through the main galleries and see the highlights of the Vatican, then you will go straight to the Sistine Chapel. Discover the treasures inside the Chapel which is one of the highest expressions of world art. Every year millions of visitors come to Rome to admire the frescoes of the great painters, especially Michelangelo's Last Judgment.

Your guide will tell you all the secret stories behind the artistic creation and commission. For example, an important aspect that perhaps not everybody knows, is that before the representation of Michelangelo, God did not have a human face, but was represented only as a hand that from the sky pointed the finger down.

With these frescoes, the Sistine Chapel affirms itself as the highest expression of the Italian Renaissance and therefore worldwide. On the Chapel's ceiling, Michelangelo painted the series of frescoes concerning the Stories of Genesis. Among these, the most famous is certainly the Creation of Adam. After the tour you can decide to spend more time inside the Vatican Museums at your leisure.

Really knowledgeable and interesting tour. Very easy to book and VERY helpful when we had to change plans. We had to cancel our initial date and got a full refund immediately with no hassle at all so we rebooked and then we were running late for the session and they were easy to contact and helpful.
