Vatican Private Tour – The Breath-Taking Art Of The Vatican

Did you know that in 2013, 6 million people visited the Vatican? It’s an incredibly popular tourist destination and that’s why many travelling to Rome elect to purchase a Vatican private tour to enhance their Italian experience. There are so many great works of art to see within the Vatican that it can be difficult to know exactly where to start.

Tourists seeking some of the world’s most prestigious pieces of art often descend on the Vatican. The Pinacoteca Vaticana art gallery includes some of the most beautiful artwork in the world including work by Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci and Caravaggio. As with most guided tours of Italy, private Vatican tours can be a useful tool in understanding the historical context and significance of the Vatican’s collection of art. In the company of an expert guide, the art of the Vatican will come alive. It’s one thing to see a stunning painting on the wall or to the look at the frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, and quite another to experience it alongside someone who knows the work intimately. A good guide talks about these paintings day in, day out, and should be able to answer any questions you may have about the art you see on your trip. An inferior private Vatican tours and guide, meanwhile, will know the title and artist but little else. It’s certainly worthwhile to book a guide who knows what they’re talking about. Your Vatican experience will only be enhanced by such a guide, while one of the other variety can easily ruin your entire trip with their lack of enthusiasm and knowledge.
