Guide

Trip Info

In this Vatican tour, see where the Borgias lived their corrupt life under patriarch Rodrigo Borgia, also known as Pope Alexander VI. See where he committed every possible sin to amass and retain power, influence and enormous wealth for himself and his family.

A terrific walk through the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican Museums and all the places of the city where the Borgias lived and left their imprint. Explore the museums, comprised of more than 2000 rooms, thousands of masterpieces of art and devotion created by the great masters of the past, from the glorious ancient Roman artists to the great “giants” of Renaissance and Baroque art. We will visit the Pine Courtyard, the Gallery of the Maps, the Renaissance Papal Apartments (frescoed by Raphael and Pinturicchio) and finally the breathtaking Sistine Chapel (decorated by Michelangelo and many others).

Art, history, religion, devotion, politics, love… the complete history of the Roman Church in a three-hour walk.
