The Vatican was a true factory of Renaissance and Baroque art. In the Vatican Museums, which is home to the world's most important art collection, we will explore Raphael's frescoes in the private apartments of Pope Julius II. From there, we will go the magnificent Sistine Chapel with Michelangelo's inspirational ceiling of the Creation and his divine depiction of the Last Judgment. Also in the papal chapel, we will view the stories of Moses and Christ which were depicted by some of the most influential artists of the Renaissance - such as Perugino, Pinturicchio, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio and Rosselli.
Upon leaving the Museums, we will relish in the incredible treasures of art and architecture in St. Peter's Square and St. Peter's Basilica. From Michelangelo's moving Pieta and imposing dome to Bernini's baroque altar piece and embracing colonnade - this will certainly be an unforgettable adventure into the cradle of Christianity.
