The tour starts with the Vatican Museums, where since 1503 the pontiffs have collected all the pieces of art throughout several years. You will go though the spectacular Cortile della Pigna and the Cortile del Belvedere, passing by the Animal’s Gallery, to join the Muse's Room (Torso del Belvedere), to finish in the famous Circle Room. You will then pass by the Greek Cross Room, in order to admire Saint Helen's and Saint Constance sarcophagus. You will go through the Sala della Biga and continue throughout several galleries: the Candelabra gallery, the Galleria degli Arazzi, the Map's Gallery. Furthermore, you'll reach the Pius V's Room and moreover the Sobieskj Room, which is the Immaculate Conceptions' room.
Finally you’ll arrive to the famous Sistine Chapel : it has been entirely frescoed by Michelangelo and represents a spectacular place that you would never want to leave.

Our tour will carry on to Saint Peter's basilica by passing in front of the famous Porta Santa. Saint Peter's was  built between 1506 and 1626 : an interminable construction site! By the way, a big amount of travertine  (used to build the Colosseum) has become a part of  Saint Peter's  building material. The construction started with Pope Julius II in 1506, who asked Italian artist Bramante to destroy the original Constantine Cathedral  in order to  build a new one with the Greek cross plan. Inside the church you'll admire the renowned  Michelangelo's La Pietà  and Bernini's baldacchino : the statue made by Arnolfo di Cambio in honor of Saint Peter.
Furthermore, you will see the Vatican's cavern where the Popes' tombs are located.

Ho visitato il 19 febbraio 2016 i Musei Vaticani e la Cappella Sistina accompagnato da una guida (il sig. Paolo). Devo dire che le spiegazioni sono state chiare e dettagliate. Una bella capacità espositiva, competenza e grande professionalità.

Ho visitato i Musei vaticani il 15 gennaio 2016 accompagnata da una giovane guida competente e gentile, che mi ha aiutato a comprendere simbologia e bellezza delle opere e la loro collocazione storica. Consiglierò ad amici la vostra Agenzia. Felicitazioni per il servizio è l'accoglienza. ,Maria Antonia Savio Monasteroo del Castello BG

No encontrábamos la oficina y nos perdimos, se querían comunicar pero mi celular no funcionaba….en fin llegamos 45 minutos tarde igualmente nos recibieron con la misma alegría que teníamos nosotros de haberlos encontrado. Partimos para el vaticano con nuestro guía Andrea, parecía que nos conocía desde siempre realmente muy agradable más que una visita guiada sentíamos que estábamos con un amigo el cual de una manera muy amena entre charla rizas y chistes nos enseñaba la historia de los principales puntos del museo. Realmente inolvidable gracias Andrea gracias Vipinitali por hacernos pasar tan lindo momento. Saludos y un fuerte abrazo de toda la familia.

mercredi 6 (jour de fete en italie?) les musées étaient très affolés donc nous avons mis pas mal de temps entre les musées, la Chapelle Sixtine et la Basilique. Trop de monde le matin tot! Pour vraiment apprécier les musées, il faudrait les visiter l'après-midi! Dommage! A' part ça, très bonne organisation et guide bien préparée.

We booked this tour for it's price and we were very satisfied with it. Maybe we should have booked a Platinum that includes the guided tour in the Basilica, but still our guide explained us everything and then we went inside the basilica by ourselves and we loved it. Amazing city...to see once in a lifetime at least!

Bonne visite guidée. A' compte faits nous aurions du prendre la Platinum qui comprend la visite guidée dans la Basilique, mais les explications fournies par notre guide nous ont suffit quand nous avons ensuite visité nous-memes la basilique!

We loved this tour. Thank you Mido and the agency was well organized. The Sistine Chapel was marvellous and the guide explained it outside because inside it's forbidden to have explaination because of the Vatican, but still our guide was very clever and gave us all the information about the Chapel. The Basilica was amazing and the guide's explanation were very interesting. We then entered the basilica by ourselves and it was marvellous. Thank you!

Great tour! We had just a few hours so we booked this tour as we've seen that the guided tour of the basilica was from outside. The museums are awesome and our guide explained us everything in a perfect english. The unique problem was the crowd inside the museum that took us a bit more time, and we've seen the paintings with a lot of people around. Maybe we should have booked the platinum tour to have less people around. The guide was well prepared and the agency staff as well.

Nous avons bien apprécié la visite. La Basilique est expliquée de l'extérieur car non comprise dans cette Carte, mais ensuite nous avons eu la possibilité d'y entrer. Très bonne organisation!

Juste un petit mot pour vous dire que nous avons beaucoup apprécié les visites du Vatican et du Colisée-Forum-Palatin vendredi et samedi derniers. L'accueil a été très sympathique, les explications très utiles, et les anecdotes, un petit plus ! On doit s'y perdre et moins apprécier les visites sans guide. Je vous recommanderai sans problème !

Après la visite du colisée le vendredi, nous avons visité le Vatican lundi après midi avec Aminata, qui a su nous guider vers l'essentiel dans l'immense Vatican et prendre en compte la présence de nos enfants de 5 & 9 ans. Un bon choix que nous recommandons !
