This tour is designed to showcase the most fascinating and visually stunning aspects of the Vatican Museums along with several other important sites within the Vatican City.
You will be enthralled and enchanted by the stunning vision of the Sistine Chapel and of the Sala dei Candelabri (Room of the Candelabras), continuing on to the Cortile della Pigna (Court of the Pinecone) and the celebrated Borgia Apartment, and finally direct access into Saint Peter's Basilica.
Lunch will be enjoyed in a famous restaurant in the neighborhood where we have specifically designed an exclusive menu for you. Your walk then continues on to Castel Sant'Angelo, originally erected as the tomb of Emperor Hadrian and his family, Palazzo di Giustizia (Palace of Justice) in the Prati neighborhood, the Chiesa del Sacro Cuore del Suffragio ("Church of the Sacred Heart of Suffrage") in neo-gothic style, and concluding with the Ara Pacis ("Altar of Augustan Peace"), dedicated by Augustus in 9 B.C. for peace in the Augustan age.
It is impossible to remain indifferent in the face of imperial Roman architecture, which conquers visitors at first glimpse thanks to the history that permeates even the 'sanpietrini' (literally small Saint Peters) the famous black, squared blocks, that forms the flagging of several streets in the city center, named in this way after the huge Basilica of the Vatican city.
