About
Your tour will start with a visit to the Cortile del Belvedere, the Museo Pio-Clementino and the vast collection of ancient Roman and Greek statues. The guide will draw your attention to the rooms painted by Raphael for Pope Julius II, considered the greatest works of his life, in particular the Parnassus and the School of Athens. You will be fascinated by the famous frescoes that decorate the splendid Sistine Chapel made by the best Italian painters, such as Michelangelo, Botticelli and other famous artists. Continue your visit to the Basilica of San Pietro, where the Pietà of Michelangelo, the Baldacchino by Bernini and numerous monuments dedicated to Popes and Saints are kept. Your tour will end in Saint Peter's Square to see the Swiss guards and the Pope's Palace.

Driver picked us up in port for shore excursion. Stopped at circus Maximus, Hadrian’s Gate and the Colosseum before dropping us at the Vatican for our private tour with our wonderfully informative guide. Very good shore excursion and great driver and guide.
Highly recommended.y
