The architecture and artwork in the Vatican is extraordinary. Gaze upon Rafael’s dazzling frescoes. Take a leisurely morning walk through the museums that house classical sculptures, renaissance tapestries and paintings and Egyptian mummies. The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is mesmerising.
Michelangelo’s Pieta is awe-inspiring and the 187-meter St Peter’s Basilica is without comparison. Climb up into the Dome, which is considered Michelangelo’s greatest architectural work. From the top view the city of Rome beneath.
