Vatican Museums,Sistine Chapel,St.Peter Basilica+Castel Sant'Angelo Private Tour

The State of Vatican draws millions of pilgrims and art lovers to St. Peter Basilica, the Vatican Museums, and the Sistine Chapel. In addition to Michelangelo’s famous frescoes “The Last Judgement” and the “Creation of Adam” within the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican has a notable treasure-chest of splendid masterpieces.Castel Sant'Angelo was originally built to be a tomb for Emperor Hadrian and his family and it was finished in 139 AD. Despite its original purpose, Castel Sant’Angelo was almost immediately converted into a military building. In addition to serving that purpose, this is also the location where Pope Gregory I saw a vision of St. Michael the Archangel in 590, announcing the end of a great epidemic in Rome. To this day, a statue of St. Michael still adorns the top of the Castel.

    Known as Hadrian's Tomb, the Castel Sant'Angelo is a fortress located on the right bank of the Tiber, a short distance from the Vatican City. Construction of the building began in the year 135 under the direction of the Emperor Hadrian, who intended to use it as mausoleum for himself and his family. In the year 590, while a great epidemic of plague devastated the city, the Pope Gregory I had a vision of Saint Michael the Archangel on top of the castle, announcing the end of the epidemic. In memory of the apparition the building is crowned with a statue of an angel.
    In the year 1277 an 800 metre fortified corridor was built that connected the castle with the Vatican City so that the Pope could escape in the event that he were in danger. During the sieges that occurred in Rome during 1527, the Pope Clement VII used the fortress as a refuge.
