The Vatican Museums
Let yourself be captivated by the Vatican’s magnificent art treasures. Experience a plethora of Roman art from 3 art movements: Baroque, Renaissance and Medieval. What’s more, you’ll see ancient Roman sculptures, mosaics and handicrafts. Along the way, your guide will tell you about more than 2,000 years of ancient Roman history. At a time when Italian art was conquering the world, the Vatican employed only the best Renaissance and Baroque architects to design the surroundings. It is thus no surprise that the popes amassed one of the largest collections of sculptures, carvings, frescoes and paintings – a feast for the eyes of art lovers.
The guided tour continues on to the Sistine Chapel, where the conclave is held. While you are entering, you will see a work of art that can relate nine scenes of a story. These are Michelangelo’s legendary ceiling frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, the Pope’s private place of prayer. Apart from its holy nature, the biggest attraction of the Sistine Chapel is the incredible frescoes created solely by Michelangelo. Gaze up to Heaven to look at the ceiling fresco The Creation of Adam and see The Last Judgement on the rear wall.
St. Peter’s Basilica
Finish your guided tour with a visit to St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest church in Italy and endlessly spectacular, and located at the reputed burial site of St. Peter. St. Peter’s Basilica is the central sanctuary of the Roman Catholic Church. The basilica has room for 20,000 people. The Pope holds all his masses here, even though San Pietro is not the Pope’s official headquarters.
Tu es Petrus et super hanc petram aedificabo ecclesiam meam et tibi dabo claves regni caelorum.
Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven.
