03 Jun ROME – A PRIVATE VATICAN EXPERIENCE
Posted at 13:37h in Unique Experiences
“A FOOL IS ONE WHO ADMIRES OTHER CITIES WITHOUT VISITING ROME.”
– Francesco Petrarca –
Arguably one of the most pivotally important cities in ancient history, Rome’s enduring influence spans 2,500 years from the legend of its creation by the first king Romulus and his defeated twin brother Remus, to Julius Caesars’ Republic and the birth of the Empire under Augustus.
The Italian capital has truly earned its status as the Eternal City, and its rich history leaves it awash with grandiose architecture dating back to antiquity; intricately designed Baroque fountains and churches, moving Renaissance artworks and lively modern piazzas – and all this is without mentioning the sublime food! It is also home to the Vatican, the holy city-state that is home to some of the most ornate and spectacular artworks in the world.
This experience offers unprecedented private and exlcusive access to the arcane and alluring mysteries of the Vatican City, a place with a breathtaking history and tradition! Wonder at the beauty of the Sistine Chapel in total silence and privacy, wander the serene Papal Gardens, and explore hidden areas and Vatican secrets usually closed to the public.
The culmination of the trip is a chance to meet and attend an intimate mass held by Pope Francis – a deeply spiritual experience regardless of faith or belief. Enjoy incredible views over the Square and the gathered crowds from an incredible viewpoint right next to the Pope himself. After Mass, Pope Francis visits the waiting guests in this exclusive, reserved area, stopping to talk and give benedictions.
