Private Louvre Must-See Tour

 

Over half a millennium old, the Vatican Museums include a vast collection of sculptures, paintings, and historical objects accumulated by popes over the centuries. Wander its galleries to discover everything form Etruscan archaeological finds to Picasso paintings. You’ll likely learn about major works including Raphael’s ‘Transfiguration’ and the ‘Laocoön’ Sculpture. The real showstopper, however, is Michelangelo’s world-famous painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Your knowledgeable guide will share the secrets behind this iconic artwork.

You’ll also wander into St. Peter’s Basilica, the world’s largest church where the Pope himself celebrates mass. It’s one of the most important places on Earth for Catholics, but religious or not, you’ll be awestruck.
