Viewing the Vatican City art collection is truly unique. It represents not just an era or a region but an entire civilisation, and with this package deal you can complement the experience with a classic Italian lunch.
The art in the Vatican City has been collected by a distinguished bunch – the Popes! They did so over 2000 years and you’ll find epoch-defining masterpieces here: from Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, Titian and Caravaggio (to name a few). You’ll find the newer Collection of Modern Religious Art and more obscure, but still fascinating, works from before the Renaissance.
It’s not all religious material either. There are ancient Etruscan and Egyptian artefacts, a gallery of old-timey maps and statues of figures from Greek mythology. There’s so much in fact, that it’s all housed in a total of 54 sale or galleries. The final one you’ll visit is the Sistine Chapel, where Michelangelo painted his ceiling frescoes. They changed the course of Western art and amongst the 300 figures he painted there, lies an image which has become iconic of humanity itself: the near-touching hands of God and Adam.
The lunch portion of the ticket is at a nearby bar – just in front of the Vatican Museums Entrance gate, in fact. It’s classic, old-school Italian: either pizza, pasta or lasagna to either fuel or reward your visit!
