Description


Vatican Museums visit


You will meet your driver at ship dock or at tender mooring; he will wait for you handling the Onirikos arrival board.

He will drive you to Rome where you will meet your Professional Guide in order to experience a unique excursion in Rome.

You will visit  the world famous Musei Vaticani and the most important symbol of Christianity: the St. Peter Basilica.

The Vatican is a must see for every visitor coming to Rome: the city of Vatican is the Holy See where the Head of the Catholic church resides, is the smallest State in the world, has the biggest church and one of the largest museums in the world.   The Vatican Museums is the largest museum complex in the world with over 1400 rooms. The Vatican Museums include the museum, galleries with 3,000 years of art, the Sistine Chapel, and parts of the papal palace. There is an astonishing amount of art, including a room of works by Raphael. The Pinacoteca Vaticana is probably Rome's best picture gallery with many Renaissance works. One of the most impressive halls is the Hall of Maps, with murals of old maps of the papal lands.

The Sistine Chapel takes its name from Pope Sixtus IV, who restored the old Cappella Magna between 1477 and 1480.  Michelangelo painted the famous ceiling frescoes, with the central scenes depicting creation and the story of Noah, and decorated the altar wall. Biblical scenes on the walls were created by several famous artists, including Perugino and Botticelli. Saint Peter's Basilica, built on the site of a church covering Peter's tomb, is one of the largest churches in the world. Saint Peter's Basilica sits on Saint Peter's Square, a top religious and tourist destination. Many important art works, including Michelangelo's famous Pietà, are in the church. You can also visit the Pope's tombs.

After the tour your driver will escort you back to the Port.

About Us

We offer unique access to some of the most unavailable & undiscovered experiences one can imagine. A Milan shopping experience in a fashion designer’s showroom? A private dinner in Venice on the roof terrace of Peggy Guggenheim? Quad bike trekking on the active Etna volcano with an extreme-sport guide? Whatever your client can dream, we can deliver. We focus on designing non-Googleable experiences—watching the Palio di Siena horse race from a hot-air balloon; visiting the private castle where the Godfather trilogy was shot. Kids love visiting an ice cream factory, while big kids clamor for a chance to drive a Maserati or Lamborghini.

Visit to Excavation underneath the Vatican • Truffle Hunt in Tuscany or Piemonte • Vasari Corridor in Florence • Private visit to the Sistine Chapel
