Sistine Chapel express tour
The Sistine Chapel Express tour by My Roman Way is the right answer for those who want to visit the highlights of the Vatican Museums with the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica.
Together we will walk through the majestic Galleria dei Candelabri, the refined Gallery of the Tapestries and the sixteenth-century Gallery of Maps. At the end your guide will take you to the Sistine Chapel, where you will have enough time to admire the grandeur of this sacred but at the same time wonderful place!
Thanks to an entrance reserved for tour guides with private groups, we will go through a “shortcut” that will connect us directly with our latest highlight: St. Peter’s Basilica!
St. Peter’s Basilica is the symbol of the Vatican State. It is the largest of the four papal basilicas of Rome, the center of CATHOLICISM and the seat of the main manifestations of Catholic worship.
We will begin the explanation from the outside, enjoying the view of the Bernini square, we will talk about the Jubilee Gate and we will continue inside with Michelangelo’s Pietà, the tombs of Pope John Paul II and John XXIII and we will not fail to stop in front of the seventeenth-century Bernini Altar which, even today, guards the tomb of the first Pope in Catholic history!
For those who wish, the tour ends at the exit, in the churchyard; while for those who have a few more minutes, you can get to the center of the square where the only true witness of everything that has happened during these centuries stands out: the Neronian Obelisk in St. Peter’s Square.
Finally, if you are interested in climbing the Dome, visit the ST PETER’S BASILICA & THE DOME tour; while for a more in-depth visit of all four papal churches, My Roman Way will be happy to guide you on the TOUR OF THE FOUR MAIN BASILICAS.
