What better way to see the Vatican than with your own private guide? Do just that on this 3-hour walking tour, and explore the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica with customized commentary. From the splendor of Michelangelo’s “The Last Judgement” fresco to the intrigue of an architectural optical illusion in St Peter’s Square, this in-depth tour charts the stories behind the Vatican’s sacred sites. Even better, the tour provides access that allows you to skip all the entrance lines — even the priority ones.

With your private guide, head straight inside the Vatican Museums for your intimate tour. If there is anything you particularly want to see, let your guide know. The best thing about having a private guide is that the commentary can be tailored to the things that interest you most: be it art, history or tales of the sometimes-scandalous Vatican popes.

Stroll through Raphael’s Rooms as your guide talks about the talented artists who designed masterpieces for the popes. With tales of Renaissance-era rivalries ringing in your ears, continue through the Pinecone Courtyard, Gallery of the Maps and Gallery of the Tapestries, and then step inside the Sistine Chapel.

Home to some of the most influential pieces of Western artwork in the world, the sacred chapel is sure to be a highlight. Stand amid the hushed quiet — talking is forbidden — and gaze at Michelangelo’s frescoes of The Creation of Adam, which cloaks the ceiling, and The Last Judgement.

From the chapel, wander through to St Peters Basilica, the Vatican’s iconic late-Renaissance church. Hear more tales of Michelangelo as you view La Pietà, and admire Bernini’s bronze baldachin that frames the papal altar. Then, take a turn around St Peter’s Square to discover Bernini’s use of optical illusion at the colonnades.

Your tour then finishes at St. Peter’s Square.

The Borghese Gallery has the most impressive collection of art in Rome. All the masters are there: Bernini, Raphael, Titian and Caravaggio among many other artists. With the help of an accredited art historian you will understand the secrets of Bernini’s sculpture, who - as you will see - worked marble to the point of transparency; understand the symbolism of Titian’s art; the amazing novelty and modernity of Raphael’s compositions and the tragic events of Caravaggio’s life which reflected in his works.

Your private walking tour starts at the Galleria Borghese, the beautiful palace where Cardinal Scipione Borghese lived with his famous art collection in the heart of Rome's most beautiful park, the Borghese Gardens. You will see Bernini's famous statues of Apollo and Daphne, David, the Rape of Proserpine and Canova's reclining nude of Paulina Borghese. Among the collection are many paintings by Raphael, Titian and Caravaggio.

After touring the gallery, you'll take a walk through the gardens to reach Piazza del Popolo. Here you'll tour the Church of Santa Maria del Popolo, with two of Caravaggio's most famous compositions. You'll be able to compare the order and harmony of Raphael's Renaissance Chigi Chapel with the emotional and sensual strength of Caravaggio's Baroque artworks.

This in-depth private tour of Rome's Baroque art and architecture is hosted by a professional guide specializing in art history. Please list any special interests you have (art, architecture, history, culture) at the time of booking to alert your guide, so they can prepare for your private tour.
