Vatican Museums
Delve deeper into the Vatican collection on this customizable tour, which focuses on the diverse art and history with an expert guide. Since the conception of the Museums in 1506, the space has grown considerably and now occupies a substantial part of the Vatican’s 44 hectares. Comprised of 1,200 rooms, 54 galleries and 8 actual museums, there’s certainly a lot to choose from. Would you like to see one of the 15 known paintings by Leonardo di Vinci, Raphael’s last work or Caravaggio’s “the Entombment of Christ”? Do you prefer Egyptology, then maybe you’d like to explore the Vatican’s Gregorian Egyptian Museum, which is specifically dedicated to Ancient Egypt and the Near East? Basically, the choices for this tour are endless, just let us know what you want to see, and we’ll make it happen or, alternatively, just ask your guide what they would suggest and let them surprise you.
