Half Day Tour of Vatican Museums

Rome
3 hours

Vatican museums are not only about Sistine Chapel or Raphael's room. There is much more. Something great can be hidden in this huge space. Well, I want to make you discover it. I want you to feel what is lost in art is. . . Having a tour with me means getting involved into what I tell you and into the feelings of the art. Discovering together is more than teaching something. It means exchanging ideas and points of views in order to fully understand and experience at the best what we see.
