STAND COMPLETELY ALONE IN THE VATICAN MUSEUMS AND SISTINE CHAPEL
This VIP opportunity will provide a unique insight into one of the most important historical and religious destinations on the planet, including the highlights – Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and Raphael’s Rooms.
Imagine standing alone in the Sistine Chapel to marvel at the famous pictorial painted by Michelangelo between 1508 and 1512. The artist painted nine detailed famous works in the centre of the ceiling illustrating powerful episodes of the Genesis that are surrounded by Nudes with text taken from the Book of Kings. Twelve Prophets and Sibyls seated on monumental thrones are at the base and in the corners Michelangelo illustrated episodes of the salvation of the people of Israel.
Here you will discover the history of the Sistine Chapel and how it is still used today as the Conclave for Papal Elections. You will stand completely alone to admire the frescoes painted by Michelangelo on the Chapel ceiling and wall behind the altar, depicting scenes from the Old Testament.
Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam ceiling fresco inside the Sistine Chapel is considered one of the greatest masterpieces of Western Art.
The Vatican City is the smallest sovereign state with one of the world’s richest art collections acquired throughout the centuries by the Popes who resided here.
