Discover the eternal treasures of the Vatican. Explore the Vatican Gardens, a place of quiet meditation for the popes since 1279. Marvel at the masterpieces of Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel, including his frescoes of the “Creation” on the ceiling and the “Last Judgment” on the altar wall. Finally visit St. Peter’s Basilica, by far the largest church in the world and home to Michelangelo’s Pietà and Bernini’s canopy over the high altar. A sightseeing drive reveals Rome’s renowned landmarks like the Circus Maximus, Venice Square and St Angel Castle, with a stop at the iconic Colosseum.
