Prepare yourself to be amazed on this tour as we are going to tell you anecdotes regarding must-see works such as the Apollo of the Belvedere or The School of Athens, and historical curiosities even in front of less famous works such as The Meeting of Leo the Great and Attila, or The Coronation of Charlemagne, in the Raphael Rooms.

Explore easily the fascinating rooms of the Pinacoteca, following a full customized itinerary, complete with ramps and elevators, that will take you through the renowned Pio-Clementino Museum, founded in the 18th century at the behest of Pope Clement XIV. Here you will be immersed in exhibition spaces that house some of the most celebrated sculptures from antiquity, including the Laocoon and the Cnidian Aphrodite. This Museum offers an unmissable opportunity to explore artistic masterpieces that narrate the richness of classical history and art.

Passing through the Cortile della Pigna we will tell you unique details about the history of the Pinion and where it was originally supposed to be located. Returning inside the Vatican Museums, let yourself be inspired by the best-preserved statues that have come down to us from Roman civilization such as the Augustus of Prima Porta and the Athena Giustiniani, authentic examples of the artistic and historical magnificence of ancient Rome.

Coming by the lift you will reach the upper galleries where you can analyze the evocative Gallery of Maps and finally arrive at the magnificent Raphael Rooms, where you can admire the famous masterpiece of the School of Athens, an artwork not to be missed.

From here you will reach the Sistine Chapel, commissioned as its name implies by Pope Sixtus IV and made famous by Michelangelo, who, working incessantly for four years commissioned by Pope Julius II, gave life to its walls through a painted narrative full of biblical stories, sibyls and prophets, that will leave you speechless in front of the greatest fresco painted by man: the Last Judgment.

The peak of this extraordinary tour will be reached through a visit to the majestic St. Peter's Basilica. Access to this architectural masterpiece will be made even more exclusive and easy thanks to a special access located in the picturesque setting of St. Peter's Square. Once through the majestic doors, visitors will be greeted by an atmosphere of sacredness and grandeur, where imposing architecture blends harmoniously with artistic fervor. This sacred space offers a unique opportunity to immerse in history, admiring up close iconic works produced by the sculptural geniuses of Michelangelo and Bernini, who left their mark on Church History here forever.
