Be enchanted by the unparalleled beauty of the Sistine Chapel with its celebrated The last Judgement and The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo, as well as many other masterworks by Botticelli and Perugino.
Top off your visit at Saint Peter’s Basilica, built on Vatican Hill across the site where Peter, the chief apostle, died a martyr and where he was buried in 64 A.D. Here the guide will point out priceless monuments like the Michelangelo’s Pietà and the Bernini’s Baldachin.
