Visiting the Vatican Museums becomes a unique experience as you will stroll on the most iconic masterpieces not to be missed!

Surprise yourself with a fascinating collection of ancient statues and learn about the masterpieces that changed the history of art forever. Tour the galleries with accurate maps of the Italian peninsula, made centuries ago, and admire the amazing visual effects on the tapestries. Observe the impressive frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, and hear all about the stories represented by one of the most famous artists, Michelangelo Buonarroti!
