The visit starts from the terrace of the "Cortile delle Carrozze" with a superb vision: the Dome of Michelangelo!

Continue with the wide and spectacular "Cortile della Pigna" to access the famous Pio Clementino Museum, the heart of the Vatican Museums, which collects exceptional works such as Laocoonte, Apollo and Belvedere Torso.

From the Sala della Rotonda, a small eighteenth-century replica of the Pantheon in the Vatican Museums, you access the Greek Cross Room dominated by the imposing silhouettes of the sarcophagi of Saint Helena and Constance, respectively mother and daughter of Constantine the Great, made in the royal red porphyry marble .

The route planned in detail is aimed at illustrating the most important places of the Vatican Museums such as: the Gallery of the Candelabra, the Gallery of the Tapestries and the Gallery of Geographical Maps, characterized by a rich historical and artistic heritage.

The San Pio V Apartment and the nineteenth-century Sala dell'Immacolata Concezione, the creation of the Vatican Museums to celebrate the proclamation of the dogma, lead to the solemn apartment of Pope Julius II where Raphael's genius reached its peak!
