We continue to the Courtyard of the “Pigna” to reach the Octagonal Courtyard.  Here is located the first collection of the Vatican Museums started by the Pope Julius II della Rovere in 1506.  In this collection we can find the “Laocoon”, a Greek-Roman copy that is the example of Hellenist style.  And considered one of the best quality copies of the Ancient World.

Strolling by part of the nine miles of  the Vatican Museum, we will arrive to the Gallery of the Tapestries, Hall of the Maps, the Rooms of Raphael and the Sistine Chapel, with the Last Judgement and the Creation of Adam by Michelangelo.

By a Special Exit*, that as Official Local Guide, we are able to use, we will go straight into the Basilica of St. Peter.  Skipping lines.

Inside, you will be astonished with all the decoration in Baroque style made by Gian Lorenzo Bernini like the Canopy over the tomb of St. Peter , as well, as the Pieta by Michelangelo.  We can’t leave the Basilica without seeing the Tombs of the Saints, John Paul II and John XXIII.
