This gallery is a 120 metre long tunnel and includes a set of all the maps that represent and anticipate the unification of Italy, both geographic and spiritual.

In the Gallery of Tapestries there is work exhibited from tapestry of the New School. These tapestries were woven in Brussels by the manufacture of Pieter van Aelst and represent the most significant religious events.

On this Vatican Museums tour we will also visit the Museo Pio-Clementino which houses some of the most important collections of sculptures of the greek-Roman world. The sarcophagus of Lucius Cornelius Scipio Africanus Barbaro, the Apollo Belvedere, the Laocoon Statue of Hermes, the statue of Venus Felix, the Perseus triumphant and Kreugas and Damoxenos.

Then moving on to the tour of the Sistine Chapel which is the cultural and artistic treasure of the Vatican Museums, its known throughout the world for the conclave and other official ceremonies of the Pope's messages. The entire Sistine Chapel is a message of universal faith, the frescoes of Michelangelo Buonarroti, the "Last Judgement" is one of the unique works of art in the world which you will get to see on the best Vatican Museums Tour.


The Vatican Museums tour will end in the fabulous Saint Peter's Square with its majestic colonnade designed by Bernini, a masterpiece of art and technique, proof of technical perfection lies in the two stone discs placed in the pavement of the square with the words "the centre of the colonnade" placing your feet on one of them, right or left depending on the case, one has the impression that the semicircle composed of four columns, is composed of a single row of columns. For any visitor to Rome if you only take one tour it must be the Vatican Museums Tour.
