A day to discover the Vatican City, the smallest sovereign state in the world!

In the morning, the Holy Father holds a public Audience on St. Peter’s Square. Attending the Papal Audience is an amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience and an opportunity to see the Pope himself. He will be passing by the faithful on his Pope mobile, on his way to the podium in front of St. Peter’s Basilica, from where will be delivering his message and finally give the Papal Blessing.

After lunch, the guide will meet you at the restaurant to continue the tour at the Vatican Museums, with its immense art collection built up by the Popes throughout the centuries. The itinerary includes Pio Clementino Hall, Laocoon and Apollo Belvedere, Maps Gallery, Candelabra Gallery, Tapestries Gallery and one of the most celebrated masterpieces in the world: the Sistine Chapel, with the breathtaking frescoes by Michelangelo.

After exploring the Vatican Museums, the tour will continue into St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest church in the world and symbol of the Catholic religion, where it will be possible to admire iconic masterpieces such as La Pietà by Michelangelo and the huge Baldacchino by Bernini.

The tour ends in the suggestive St. Peter’s Square, dominated by Michelangelo’s imposing Cupola and surrounded by the famous Bernini’s double Colonnade.
