See the Sistine Chapel Rome and a host of countless masterpieces

The Sistine Chapel has the most famous ceiling in the world, and you’ll get to go in and immerse yourself in Michelangelo’s seemingly never-ending fresco. See his life-like figures of Adam, God and the saints and try to spot the artist’s self-portrait on the torso of St. Peter! Not only that, you’ll visit the Vatican’s fascinating gallery of maps, the gallery of tapestries and many other masterpieces the Museums boast, all while learning about the artists who embellished the tiny city state, by our expert professional guides.

Be awestruck by the art and grandeur of St. Peter’s Basilica 

Pope John Paul II called the Sistine Chapel the “Holy Spirit’s place of action” but its beauty pales in comparison to the centre of the Catholic church itself - St Peter’s Basilica. There, you can admire the incredible mosaics in all of their glory, such as Michelangelo’s Pietà and Bernini’s Baldachin. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and drink in a visit to remember this truly special experience.
