Enrich your Vatican experience by joining this personal, semi-private tour where we can delve into the fabulous art and history that surrounds the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. We’ll begin at the Vatican Museum, a labyrinthine complex featuring over 1000 rooms that cover four millennia. Those visiting unguided often find themselves dazzled by the work on display here – which can make it somewhat difficult to navigate. But we have curated a route through the museum that packs in all the best bits – without leaving you lost for hours in its maze-like corridors. Our next stop is the world-famous Sistine Chapel, best-known for its sprawling ceiling art painted by Michelangelo. This seminal work is said to have changed the course of Western Art – which may sound a tad dramatic, but trust me: when you see it, you’ll believe it. The rules dictate silence upon entry to the chapel, which isn’t usually a problem – it’s sheer beauty leaves most speechless.
