“Without having seen the Sistine Chapel, it’s not possible to have an idea of what one man is capable of doing”.

Since that time, the chapel has served as a place of both religious and functionary papal activity. Today it is the site of the Papal conclave.

  • "private tour of the Vatican"
    We set up a private tour of the Vatican and met our tour guide just outside the Vatican museums. She was absolutely delightful and friendly. We had a great time and I would book this tour again.

  • "Vatican City tour"
    We booked the Vatican City tour. The guide was amazing and exceptionally knowledgable, also very passionate about passing this knowledge on. A tour is so worthwhile, you learn so much and understand what you are looking at. It made all the difference.
