Our tour continues with the Room of the Segnatura, originally the personal library and office of Pope Julius II, and the first that Raphael painted. The frescoes in this room are the most celebrated of all the Raphael Rooms. The 4 main frescoes represent the fusion of classical and Christian themes. Admire the Room of Helidorus, the Room of the Fire in the Borgo and the Hall of Constantine.The group’s last stop is in the Sistine Chapel. Because no talking is allowed in the chapel, the guide will make a stop before entering, and with the help of illustrated panels will explain the paintings that are in the chapel.
The chapel was built in the 15th century and was decorated with frescoes by the mostfamous artists of the time including Botticelli, Perugino, Ghirlandaio and Michelangelo.The visit proceeds with St. Peter's Basilica, the world's most famous church. The first stop at St. Peter’s is in the square where the guide will explain the architecture and the fascinating external details. The church was designed by Michelangelo, although he died before its final completion. Upon entering the Basilica, the group will stop at Michelangelo’s Pietà. His only signed work, Michelangelo sculpted this beautiful marble statue when he was only 25 years old.
The next and last stop is at Bernini’s Baldacchino. Made in the 17th century, this huge bronze sculpture stands above the high altar and St. Peter’s tomb. At the completion of the tour, visitors are free to further explore the Basilica on their own, but they cannot return to the Museums.
