Vatican Museums Tour

The tour will have a special focus on the Gallery of Maps, painted by Ignazio Danti during the pontificate of Pope Gregory XIII. Composed of 40 panels accurately representing all the regions of XVI century Italy and divided by the chain of the Apennines, which imaginarily runs through the corridor, the Gallery stands as an incomparable example of the efforts in remapping that had an important centre in Counter Reformation Rome. Located on the west side of the Belvedere Courtyard, the Gallery is just on the way to other inestimable treasures of the Vatican Palaces, i.e. the Raphael Rooms and the Sistine Chapel, which will be the last stops of the visit.
