  • Tour both the Vatican Museums and the Leonardo da Vinci Experience just in front of St. Peter's Square
Have a unique opportunity to admire and compare two of the most renowned geniuses who ever lived. This amazing tour combines the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel with the Leonardo Da Vinci Museum just 200 meters from St. Peter's Basilica.
What to Expect
Michelangelo Buonarroti lived from 1475 to 1564 (age 89) - scultor, artist, architect, and a poet

Leonardo da Vinci lived from 1452 to 1519 (age 67) - artist, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, sculptor, architect, botanist, musician, and a writer

Michelangelo's most famous works include "David" (Florence), "Moses" (Rome), "La Pietà" (Vatican), the dome of St. Peter's Basilica, frescos in the Sistine Chapel, "The Last Judgement" and the "Creation of Adam" (Vatican).

Leonardo's most famous works include the "Mona Lisa" (Paris), "The Last Supper" (Milan), "Vitruvian Man", projects for the helicopter, armoured tank, bicycle, parachute, robot, telephone, and an unsupported extension bridge.

Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo were bitter rivals and often clashed in public? Some gossip ... Leonardo, who was older than Michelangelo, convinced the powerful Medici family in Florence to place young Michelangelo's now famous statue of David in a remote corner of the Loggia della Signoria.   

Now for the first time, this tour gives you the magnificent opportunity to see, compare, and decide which of the two geniuses is the best.
