What you will do
The Vatican Collections seminar focuses solely on the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, excluding the Basilica of Saint Peter's. Led by an art historian or church historian, the exact course of the itinerary depends on the background of the docent, the interests of the group, and the vicissitudes of the Museums (i.e. which galleries are open on a given evening). We will traverse the halls of the Vatican palaces, visiting the most important rooms of the museums, including the ancient statuary collection of Julius II and the papal apartments decorated by Raphael. By the time we reach the Sistine Chapel, we will have set the context to appreciate the cultural and artistic climate in which Michelangelo worked painting the ceiling and later the Last Judgment.
