This is an amazing opportunity to stroll around one of the most famous museums in the world, without having to share it with thousands of other tourists! I.D.I Travel can arrange a special opening after hours, just for you, with your private guide. The tour will start in the Pine-Cone Courtyard, named from the huge bronze pine-cone at its centre. You will then pass through the Belvedere Octagonal Court and past the statues of Laocoon and Apollo as well as the Belvedere Torso and statues of Jupiter and Hercules and the sarcophagus of Constantine and that of Saint Helena. You will then enter the building and walk through the Galleries of the Candelabra, the Tapestries and Maps before entering the Raphael Rooms, where you will see the stunning frescoes commissioned by Pope Julius II. While Raphael was working on these rooms, Michelangelo was next door, painting the Sistine Chapel, which you will now enter and gaze with awe at the incredible Creation on the ceiling and the breath-taking Last Judgement on the wall.
