Named after the colossal bronze “Pigna” (pinecone) that was famously described by Dante in his “Inferno,” the Pinecone Courtyard was designed by Bramante as part of the Belvedere Courtyard, and commissioned by Pope Julius II in 1504. It’s the perfect setting for a sunset dinner before your tour of the galleries.

Learn the history of the Vatican Museums art and architecture as your guide takes you down some of the 9 miles of galleries. It would take a lifetime to see everything, but your guide will take you to some of the star attractions, including the Raphael Rooms, lesser-known Hall of Maps, and Gallery of Tapestries.
An undisputed highlight will be Michelangelo’s magnificent frescoes in the Sistine Chapel.
