Q&A
  • Who painted the Sistine Chapel?

    Master of the Renaissance Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel ceiling – the two most famous frescoes being The Last Judgment and The Creation of Adam. But there are other paintings from great Renaissance artists of that same time that also line the Sistine Chapel walls. These series of frescoes depicting the Life of Moses and the Life of Christ were painted by a team made up of Botticelli, Perugino, Ghirlandaio, and Rosselli.
  • Where is the Sistine Chapel?

    This Sistine Chapel or Cappella Sistina (originally known as Cappella Magna) is a chapel located in the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the Pope in Vatican City Rome, Italy.
  • How long is Vatican tour?

    Vatican tours can be anywhere from 2 to 3 hours or more. It really depends on the type of tour you choose, and how long you wish to stay and explore afterwards. For those interested in a deeper dive of the amazing collections of artwork housed in the Vatican Museum, 3 hours is decent amount of time.
  • When was St. Peter’s Basilica Built?

    St. Peter’s Basilica was built in 1626, taking 120 years to complete. Construction of the ‘New’ St. Peter’s Basilica that you see today, began in 1506 over the same site of the ‘Old’ St. Peter’s Basilica which dated back to the 4th century.

Bellissima visita
Ho fatto questa visita guidata con la guida Valeria, molto brava. Le cose da vedere sono bellissime, Ovviamente, peccato per l'assurda quantità di visitatori. Fortunatamente il nostro gruppo era piccolo e Valeria è stata molto abile nel farci sistemare di volta in volta in punti strategici, dove abbiamo POTUTO vedere meglio quanto ci stava spiegando. Lo consiglio.

A wonderful and humorous journey through the vatican
Me and the missus had a wonderous tour through the vatican museums, sistine chapel and st. peter's church. Our guide Laura Antonucci provided insightful commentary with a humorous touch which we appreciate. In two and a half hours we learned so much, and everything went smoothly without a hitch. It was a wonderful tour and i would very much enjoy doing it again.

Fantastic tour
Laura was our tour guide and she certainly Knew her stuff! We went around a Decent pace as a lot to see and fairly crowded - gave some really good detail and BROUGHT history to life with some humour. Make sure you go for an early tour its much less stressful but it will be busy by the time you finish!! Thank you laura

Musei vaticani
Francesca Foti è una guida straordinaria è riuscita in 3 ore tra una folla esagerata a trasmettere la grandiosità delle più importanti opere con competenza e grande umanità rendendo un’esperienza che poteva diventare troppo pesante godevolissima e speciale

nergens wachten was heerlijk
Laura - 03/12/2019 07:31
Informative guide.. good pace throughout and felt like we definitely got our money’s worth. The tour company were also very helpful. Vatican City was closed unexpectedly during our allotted time slot so we had to come back few hours later but they were very accommodating and helped to sort out an issue which was caused as a result. Definitely recommend.
