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.

Ottima esperienza
Buonasera,ho apprezzato molto la visita ai Musei Vaticani, ovviamente per la loro bellezza, che è stata accompagnata dalla spiegazione chiara e competente della guida, s.ra Giulia Lorino che ringrazio e a cui do il massimo della valutazione.

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

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.

Super deutschsprachiger Guide (Geborene Römerin mit schweizer Akzent). Es ist sehr zu empfehlen, pünktlich am Treffpunkt zu sein, da dann die Gruppe auch pünktlich loskommt, wodurch, mit etwas Glück, die langen Wartezeiten an den Sicherheitskontrollen vermieden werden können. (Laut Guide kann das mehr als 60 Minuten dauern). Wir können die geführte Tour absolut weiterempfehlen

Skip the lines and going with a tour guide is the only way to go.
