What can I expect?

Explore the Vatican Museums & St. Peter's Basilica
The Vatican Museums are a must-see in Rome, not just because of their extensive collections of art, archaeology, and ethno-anthropology, all collected by the Popes over the years. They're also the site of some of the most lavishly decorated halls and galleries in the world.

See some of the Vatican's best classical statuary at the Pio Clementino Museum. Marvel at the huge marble candelabra at the Gallery of the Candelabra, walk along a corridor of amazing, intricate tapestries at the Gallery of the Tapestries, and over 40 16th-century topographical maps of Italy in the Gallery of the Geographical Maps.

Continue to the four Raphael Rooms, famous for their frescoes. Then, in the Sistine Chapel see Michelangelo's masterpiece Giudizio Universale, or the Last Judgment, and his famous frescoes.

In the magnificent St. Peter's Basilica, tour the spiritual center of the Catholic Church and the world's largest church building.
