    Way of running and guided tour time.

    3. Ottagono Courtyard (Laocoonte Group, Apollo del Belvedere);

    4. Candlestick Gallery;

    7. Gallery and Chapel of S.Pio V;

    8. Sala Sobieski;

    9. Raffaello's Rooms:

    10. Sistine Chapel.

    Guided tour entirely dedicated to the site of Vatican Museums with its symbols and the hidden truth behind it. Discover the secret content and allegories that artists have concealed behind their paintings.

    Botticelli, Perugino, and Michelangelo have included in their works the real "code messages", loaded with symbolic meanings often with multiple reading possibilities, which you can decipher and fully understand by explanation of our professional guide.

    Through the interpretation of a great scholar, Heinrich W. Pfeiffer, and more or less other questionable hermeneutic keys (great sensation aroused the release of "The Secrets of the Sistine") we will enchant you with the discovery of the most famous frescoes known in the world and paintings of the greatest Italian artists of the fifteenth century.

    We find out why Botticelli could not finish the fourth panel assigned to him, and how the Medici family was somewhat despised by papal authority; we will reveal the meaning of trees, birds and colors in the paintings and the ways in which certain conclusions have been reached.

    A not always intuitive path, where even the most insignificant element is not random and the allegories are the result of theological studies, make the Sistine Chapel an immense book through which it is possible to decipher and interpret judgments, thoughts and spirituality of the supreme masters who contributed to its execution.
