TOUR ITINERARY

Meet your private guide at the designated meeting point just outside the Vatican Museums. From there, your half day private tour of the Vatican will begin in the galleries of the Vatican Museums, home to the most celebrated art collection in Europe.

 

This collection includes artifacts, sculptures, frescoes and mosaics from antique to modern times that originate from all over the world. Throughout the centuries, Popes started to collect objects from ancient Egypt, ancient Rome and the Etruscan civilization, as well as from the first churches and basilicas ever built –a task which they pursue to this day. Some highlights from the Vatican collection include artworks by Giotto, Raphael, Da Vinci, Caravaggio, Titian and Bellini. The tour will take you throughout the various rooms and hallways that compose the Vatican Museums until you eventually arrive in the last room: the spectacular Sistine Chapel, extreme expression of Michelangelo’s genius.

 

Last but not least, you will visit the largest sanctuary of Christianity, St. Peter’s Basilica, where proportions seem to have been forgotten in an amazing triumph of marble, bronze and mosaic works. Many artists and architects worked on this massive undertaking, resulting in the fantastic artistic and architectural wonder in front of you now.

 

End the tour in St. Peter’s Square, as your guide points out Bernini’s ingenious use of optical illusion.

Stop by one of Rome’s many ice cream parlors and enjoy a delectable gelato before continuing toward the present day political center of Italy: Palazzo Montecitorio. The tour continues toward the Pantheon, one of the best preserved buildings from Ancient Rome, and the nearby ancient Temple of Hadrian. From there, the lively Piazza Navona is but a few streets away, famous for the Fountain of the Four Rivers, with its Egyptian obelisk, and the church Sant’Agnese in Agone.

TOUR ITINERARY

Your private driver will pick you up in the morning to take you on a fascinating full day excursion to Pompeii.

 

Located near present-day Naples, Pompeii was an ancient Roman city at the foot of the infamous Mount Vesuvius. The volcano erupted in 79 AD, killing the inhabitants and burying the city in ash but, on the other hand, perfectly preserving their way of life. Get ready to travel back in time as your guide takes you through the archaeological park, walking you along the same streets that were once frequented by Romans thousands of years ago. During your visit you will discover the public baths, forums, and villas built and used by the inhabitants of Pompeii, as well as a collection of artifacts –from household items to jewelry—recovered from the ashes. You will marvel at the incredibly well-preserved frescoes which still adorn the walls and floors of the villas, and which have allowed visitors and researchers alike to glimpse into what life was like at the time.

Even if your interests do not lie in history, this is an archaeological site that cannot fail to impress you. At the end of your tour, meet with your driver again to return to your accommodations.
