For the duration of the tour, your private guide will tell you more about the history of these important religious sites and discuss some of the masterpieces which can be found inside. The tour will start at either 9.30am or 2.30pm, depending on your preference, and a great feature of a private tour is that you can explore as fast or slow as you like, spending more time on the things that interest you most, and also visiting rooms in the museums which are not accessible to larger tour groups. You will meet with your guide outside the Vatican Museums’ entrance and with fast-track access your tour will commence without having to queue; visiting the Belvedere Courtyard, the Pio-Clementino Museum and the extraordinary collection of Ancient Roman and Greek sculptures. You will then view the Gallery of Tapestries and the Gallery of Maps, which houses one of the most important collections of Renaissance maps in the world. In the Sobiesky Room you will see one of the largest paintings in the Vatican collections and be astounded at the beauty of the frescoes which adorn the room of the Immaculate Conception. Next you’ll enter Raphael’s Rooms, which are some of the most beautiful in the Vatican. Decorated for Pope Julius II by the renowned Raphael, they display some of his most admired masterpieces; the Parnassus and The School of Athens. Before you enter the Sistine Chapel (no talking is allowed inside) your guide will discuss the wonderful frescoes by Michelangelo, Botticelli and others that adorn the walls and ceilings inside. Your guide will also share anecdotes about this historic chapel which is still used today - as the venue for Conclave, the papal election.
