Day 2 Exploring The Vatican City

A local expert introduces the grandeur of the city today! Start off in the Vatican State, the richest community in the world. While others wait in line, you are fast-tracked through the VIP entrance into the Vatican Museums. Admire the collection of priceless art gathered by Popes over the ages. Your visit also includes behind-the-scenes access to parts of the Vatican denied to the general public - the famous Bramante Staircase. Then enter the sublime Sistine Chapel. This is where your audio headset comes into its own, providing clear, expert commentary from your guide. Gaze up now and truly appreciate the significance of Michelangelo's famous painted ceiling. Next door, in St. Peter's Basilica, see one of Michelangelo's early works, the Pieta, and the splendid dome completed after his death. The rest of the day, enjoy free time.
