St. Peter’s Basilica, Mosaics Class, Private After-Hours Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel Tour
Marvel at the Basilica via St. Peter's Square—one of the largest churches in the world and a renowned example of Renaissance architecture. The iconic dome dominates Rome’s skyline. Initially constructed by Constantine in the early 4th century, it was rebuilt in the 16th century by Bernini, Bramante and Michelangelo. It stands on the site where the apostle Peter was crucified. Considered the first pope, he is buried under the main altar along with other popes who followed. Please note: Due to official Papal activities within the Vatican and St. Peter’s Basilica, the order and timing of activities on Days 2 & 3 may be altered. Vatican Museums activity may also take place on Day 2, rather than Day 3. Your Adventure Guides will advise you of any changes.
Piece together your own masterpiece at this hands-on class on the art of mosaic-making. You’ll work with marbles, glasses and enamels as adult Adventurers will create their own frame or mirrors with tiles, while Junior Adventurers will realize figures of animals, small frames or mirrors with tiles. After class, you will get to bring home the mosaic you created. During class, a buffet lunch will be available.
Experience an exclusive after-hours, privately guided tour of the Vatican Museum—home to masterpieces by the greatest artists in history in a collection spanning 4000 years. Also, be guided by a local expert through the Sistine Chapel where you can get an intimate look at Michelangelo's magnificent achievement.
Say “arrivederci” to your fellow Adventurers and new friends at a delicious dinner in the Vatican Museum.
