The small state of the Vatican has an almost timeless history. The burial place of St Peter, beneath the altar of the Basilica, is the centre of centuries of power and spirituality. The technical innovations of the 16th century, combined with the influence of ancient art, led to a revolution in religious art: the Renaissance. Popes curated collections of Greek and Roman artworks, and commissioned Raphael and Michelangelo to decorate their churches and private residences. Our Vatican tours offer first-hand experience of unique masterpieces, revealing the creativity of artists who left us with their sublime artworks - evidence of their genius, and proof of their passions.
