Experience description

The Vatican museums house one of the greatest art collections in the world, attracting millions of visitors every year, and the best way to avoid the often mammoth queues is by booking a Tinggly tour. You’ll explore the myriad corridors here, through evocatively-titled rooms such as the Maps Gallery, the Candelabra Gallery, the Raphael Rooms, the Pine Corridor and many more besides. Along the way you’ll gain a broad appreciation of the history of the Vatican, its traditions and politics, as well as learning about its occasional dark side.

The Sistine Chapel is the Pope’s official residence whilst in the Vatican, and of most interest to the visitor is the stunning frescoes that adorn the interior walls by artists such as Botticelli, and Michelangelo’s best-known work on the ceiling. Over five hundred years old now, paintings such as The Creation of Adam and The Last Judgement still provoke gasps of admiration from those seeing them for the first time. St Peter’s Basilica, widely regarded as the greatest building of its age, held considerable influence over Western church architecture for centuries and is the final resting place of many Popes, as well as several figures of European royalty.


Highlights:

  • See the legendary frescoes of Sistine Chapel, including Michelangelo’s The Last Judgement
  • Explore the world’s foremost art collection in the Vatican Museums

Very knowledgeable guide made the tour fascinating and enjoyable, would highly recommend, without a guide you would miss so much of the history which was explained in great detail during the tour.
