    The Vatican is one of the most interesting and breathtakingly beautiful sites in the world, but it can be a bit overwhelming to the average traveler. Our guides will take you to some of its major attractions, as well as to some lesser known spots, and give you a broad base for understanding the history, architecture, and politics of the Vatican.

    This interesting tour includes a comprehensive visit to the Sistine Chapel, Candelabra Gallery, Maps Gallery, Pio Clementino's Rooms, Tapestry Gallery, Belvedere Courtyard, Pine Courtyard and much more within the Vatican corridors.

    But don't think that the Vatican is all gold and pomp and stateliness - its history is full of dark tales of deceit and even lust! You will get a taste of it all: the nitty gritty and the high and mighty, the dirty politics and the ethereal beauty of Renaissance creation. A world of discove awaits you, and we are excited to take you there. Enjoy a guided walking vatican tour!
