Vatican City: the Treasures Box

Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter Basilica and Square: the widest art collection in the world, discover its major masterpieces.

Probably it doesn’t exist on earth a museum as amazing as the Vatican Museums. One of the most important Art collection in the world for its richness and variety! During the visit you can see statues and objects that will recount of the ancient Greece and Rome but also Baroque and Renaissance arazzi together with frescoes and paintings, bas-relief and trompe l’Oeil. All of these masterpieces are displayed in long galleries with richly decorated ceilings and pavements, courtyards and staircases twist and turn inside the Popes’ Palace. The Museum’s heart is Michelangelo genius’ masterwork: the Sistine Chapel. Its beauty, its magnificence and its timeless charm does not show its age – 500 hundreds years old – and amazes now as then.

A real marble jewel filled with artworks, the deserved end for such fascinating tour.

My family and I headed to Italy for a once in a lifetime trip and Romebylocals and their guide was nothing short of Fabulous for our first tour in Rome to the Vatican and Catacombs, Pablo was so knowledgeable and pleasant to spend time with that he truly made the our tour more enjoyable then we ever could have imagined.  If you are looking for a great local tour company we highly recommend Romebylocals, you cannot go wrong!  Thanks!  The DeStefano Family

  Everyone in our family, adults and children alike, really enjoyed our two tours with Romebylocals.  Chiara brought the Coliseum and Forum to life for us all, with interesting pictures to show us what each area used to look like. Stephania gave us a great tour of the Vatican, pointing out things we would definitely have missed otherwise. Highly recommend.
