Q&A
  • Where is the Sistine Chapel located?

    The Sistine Chapel is located in Vatican City, Rome, Italy. The chapel originally named Cappella Magna is housed in the Apostolic Palace, which is the official residence of the Pope.
  • Where is St. Peter’s Basilica?

    St. Peter’s Basilica is also in Vatican City, Rome, right next to the Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums, some of the most visited places in Italy.
  • How much is Michelangelo’s Pieta worth?

    This original masterpiece by Michelangelo is priceless! But the Michelangelo Pieta found in Ragusa is said to be worth around $300 million.
  • Who built St. Peter’s Basilica?

    St. Peter’s Basilica’s construction spanned nearly 120 years, so there were multiple hands involved in building it over that time frame. But the main designers and contributors to St. Peter’s were by the greatest Renaissance artists and architects: Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno, and Bernini.
  • How many rooms did Raphael paint in the Vatican?

    There are four Raphael Rooms located in the Apostolic Palace of the Vatican Museums in Vatican City. Raphael’s stanze (or rooms) are comprised of Sala di Costantino, Stanza di Eliodoro, Stanza della Segnatura, and Stanza dell’Incendio di Borgo each room decorated with different frescoes, the most famous being The School of Athens.

It was a well-organized tour and our guide had some interesting facts which were outside the standard info they tell you on Vatican books.

Highly recommended tour.
Our tour was very informative and interesting. The guide had a background in art history and told us many stories. It was great! Highly recommended!

The tour was enjoyable.
I would say the skip the line access is key and would highly recommend GYG on that front for being cost-effective and well organized. I thought the guide provided was very knowledgeable on Vatican history and did a good job of expressing that. We got very good access to St. Peter’s basílica and square and the Sistine Chapel. My one criticism would be that she did not give us enough time for pictures where that was permitted. But if you are cagey there are ways to work that out anyway without missing the narration.

Giulio was an amazing tour guide! He led us through the Vatican Museum and St. Peter’s Basilica with acute knowledge and background of the locations. He kept a good pace so everybody in the group could keep up with him. He knew the answer to every question and had a great sense of humor which really added to the tour.
