The Top Ten Things to See in the Vatican Museums
10. The Egyptian Gallery - The collection is so interesting because of the relationship between the Roman Empire and Egypt. As you might know, Mark Antony and Julius Caesar both had relations with Cleopatra. The collection occupies five rooms; plan to spend about 25 minutes in each.
9. Vatican Gardens - Take a stroll past innumerable grottoes, antiquities and world-class landscaping. Did you know there are 100 fountains in the Vatican Gardens? Unlike the Vatican Museums, the gardens are never crowded. One way to access the Vatican Gardens by booking a full day tour of the Vatican Museums, Gardens and Castle Gandolfo with The Roman Guy.
8. Pinacoteca - The Pinacoteca (Picture Gallery) is one of the more modern sections of the Vatican Museums and is often overlooked. Get up close and personal to 460 works of art, painted by the likes of Caravaggio, Raphael, Titian, Leonardo, Guido Reni and Giotto.
7. Pinecone Courtyard - Named after the colossal bronze pinecone that once stood near the Pantheon next to the Temple of Isis, the Pinecone Courtyard was designed by Donato Bramante. From here catch an amazing view of St. Peter's Dome. Sometimes the guards let you spin the giant fractured sphere sculpture in the center of the spacious courtyard.
6. Pio-Clementino Museum - The Vatican's Pio-Clementino Museum is one of Rome's best collections of ancient Greek and Roman statues. In the octagonal Belvedere Courtyard, check out the Apollo Belvedere, Laocoön and His Sons and the Belvedere Torso. Then visit the biggest and oldest bathtubs you’ll ever see. Nero's Bathtub measures an incredible 25 ft in diameter. The red marble it is made from is so rare, there is no way to recreate it today.
5. The Vatican's Main Galleries - The Gallery of the Candelabra, Gallery of the Tapestries and our personal favorite, the Gallery of the Maps. The painted frescoes of maps reveal how Renaissance Italians saw themselves and their surroundings. Predating a unified Italy by nearly 300 years, the Gallery of Maps shows the length and breadth of the peninsula circa 1580.
4. St. Peter's Square - If you're not planning on visiting the Vatican Museums during your trip to Rome, at least come here. This is one of the most famous and breathtaking squares in the world and the largest, open area of Rome. The piazza is encased by two massive arms comprised of four rows of colonnades. As you walk up to the square, it looks like two massive arms welcoming you.
3. Raphael Rooms - Raphael was one of Rome's most famous Renaissance artists who encompassed all the ideals of a Renaissance man. He designed and frescoed multiple rooms connected to the Vatican Museums. Among other masterpieces, visit one of Raphael’s most famous works of art, The School of Athens.
2. St. Peter's Basilica - Don't miss this! St. Peter's Basilica is a massive church filled with artwork from some of the most celebrated artists in history. Enter through a special door and skip the lines to get the most opulent church in the world. Once inside, admire masterpieces that include the La Pieta, Il Baldacchino, La Pieta, the statue of St. Peter and much more.
1. Sistine Chapel - Since the chapel is inside the museums, entrance is included in your Vatican tour. Now that the chapel is restored, every detail and color used in the treasured work of art is visible. Only when you are inside, is it clear why it is one of the Sistine Chapel is one of the most celebrated works of art in Western civilization.

Rome's Vatican & Sistine Chapel Tour: How to Avoid the Crowds
Imagine standing in the Sistine Chapel, with just a handful of people around. Or walking through the Vatican City Museums with not one other soul... It is possible!
On our trip to Rome, we wanted to see as much of Vatican City's highlights, without the thousands of tourists, long waits and jampacked rooms. I am so happy that we took this small group tour with LivItaly because we actually got to learn a lot and ENJOY our experience.
You wake up EARLY but it is all worth it when you meet your guide--Giulia was amazing--and then you walk into the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel in the quiet hours of the morning before they are even open to the public!

Good morning, everyone. Welcome to Vatican.
The tour was fantastic.
It was recommended by my boss at work actually.
He was there a couple of months ago.
He said this was something I had to do, and he was 100% correct.
My favorite part was probably the Sistine Chapel.
Just the magnitude of what went on in there, and I think because the tour guide gave us 20 minutes on our own to figure out the room.
It was a very useful time.
It was fantastic.
She was lively.
There was a lot of that I would've never guessed.
Rome is amazing.
It's my third or fourth time here and it never gets dull.

Travelling in Italy: Best Places to Visit
If travelling in Italy isn’t on your bucket list, why isn’t it? Italy is home to incredible food and drink, awe-inspiring history, and perfect romance. Italy comes highly-hyped, but for good reason: travelling in this Mediterranean paradise is a dream come true. If you’re preparing for a trip to Bella Italia, let TourRadar be your guide to all things Italian.
Is any trip to Italy complete without a visit to Rome? This ancient city welcomes more than 4 million travellers each year, and for good reason: its art, culture, and food have attracted some of the greatest minds in history. Take in the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain, and the Pantheon -- to name a few! The sights in Rome are never-ending.
Italy is one of the most religiously-significant countries in the world. Join us as we explore Vatican City: gawk at St. Peter’s Basilica, Pieta, the Altar of St Jerome, and the iconic painted ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, one of Michelangelo’s greatest masterpieces. Travelling Italy means never lacking for incredible views.
Speaking of views, what about something for those looking to kick back and relax? Italy isn’t all urban exploration, of course. Thankfully, we’re more than happy to cover Italy’s incredible coast. Check out the Sorrento Peninsula -- tour a mozzarella farm, or just marvel at the beach views. Take a dip in the sea, or travel further inland for amazing views paired with even more amazing wine.
It’s almost impossible to describe all that Italy has to offer in just one video, but we’ve sure tried! Of course, if you feel like you haven’t been able to see it all, there’s only one solution: start planning an Italian adventure of your own, and get ready to spend some time travelling in Italy.
