Great hours spent in the Vatican

Had a separate experience from Vatican city. We walked into the chambers and watched all the timeline of the great Roman history. We entered the museum first and felt we were in a whole different world of sculptures. Couldn't resist my eyes absorbing all the great works.In addition, explanation from the guide was icing on the cake. This visit is definitely a unforgettable one.

My dream came true - visiting St. Peters

As my family members are very religious and visited Saint Peter’s Basilica several times except me, so it became my dream to visit st. Peter’s basilica for once at least. It was my first trip to Rome. One of my cousins has booked this tour for me who travelled to Rome last year. I was a little bit annoyed as he booked this tour without my concern. However, after getting a voucher and meeting with my group was really a great pleasure for me. The Rome Tour Tickets’s guide reminded us to follow all the rules and regulations and after a short time security check ups we discovered ourselves inside the ancient vatican museums. The school of athens, the last judgement, beautiful sistine chapel was really entertaining. At the last hour, we visited St. Peter's Basilica which was a really exciting experience for me. The interior inside the basilica is filled with artworks and famous sculptures. Among them, Michelangelo’s La pieta, Bernini’s the Baldachin was the main altar. It was not just a tour but also a dream came true for me.

Choose when plan to go

Another fascinating place I had to visit in Rome was St. Peter's Basilica. It’s absolutely memorable, Indescribable, and simply stunning. There are really no words to describe the experience I had at this beautiful cathedral. The beauty of the architecture and preserved history is absolutely emotional and spiritual for me.

Beautiful historical artwork

Our tour included the Vatican museum, sistine chapel and center of attraction the St. Peter's basilica. We observed some breathtaking artworks, statues and murals throughout the journey. We kept visiting from one impressive hallway to another room. First part of that tour was through the museum. We were stunned to see Renaissance era artwork. Without a guide we wouldn't have enjoyed this. Then we went to Sistine chapel where taking photos was not allowed inside. The last part was St Peter's Basilica. Although it was flooded with tourists but overall tour was speechless. We were eager to visit the largest church in the world and we are happy we did it with pride.

Organized tour highlighting the Romain history

With more than 7 kilometers of art galleries, the vatican museums are one of the largest museums in the world. Once you are in front of the Vatican, you are going to lose yourself in ancient roman art, culture, history and beliefs. This tour was my third visit to vatican and still I had experienced something new in vatican! It’s not possible to cover the whole area within this 3 hours tour. But this tour agency tried their best to organize the tour objectives to see the highlights with an expert english guide.

La Pieta was my destination

I was so excited about my tour and couldn't wait to visit Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s. La pieta is known as Michelangelo’s Pieta which was sculpted between 1498 and 1499 was so fascinating. It is covered by plexiglass and built with the religious belief of virgin Mary’s pain of holding the corpse of his son Jesus Christ. I was impressed by this italian Renaissance.

Visit twice if you have time

Great tour with a small group. Everything was so marvelous and one of the most amazing places we have been to. i have seen lots of churches but great to see this one. The details are just pretty special. Must see when you are in Rome and the Vatican if your interests are like mine then you will enjoy the time spent there.

The place is overwhelming.

Had a fantastic guided tour with a very quick entry. Our guide explained all the main attractions of the museums, including painted frescoes, the gallery of maps, and the beautiful Sistine Chapel. We were amazed to visit all the mesmerizing sites and awe-inspiring work.

History repeats itself

The Vatican is too big so we all followed our guide’s instructions to complete the tour wonderfully. I was waiting when we’d step into St. Peter’s. It took almost 2 hours after starting the tour to get into St. Peter's Basilica. When I stepped inside the basilica, I was just shocked by the interior dimensions which are lavishly decorated with marble, reliefs, architectural sculpture, and gilding. Renowned work of Renaissance architecture and the largest and greatest church in the world surely astonished travelers. Highly recommended tour.
