The Vatican Museums houses an extraordinary collection of works of art collected by popes since Pope Julius II, in 1506, decided to expose to the public the Laocoonte, the extraordinary marble group found near the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore.

Over the centuries this museum center has been enriched with priceless sculptures from the ancient world, from Renaissance and Baroque paintings, to modern and contemporary works by artists such as Matisse and Dalì. In reality it is a museum complex, which includes 12 museums, from the Vatican Pinacoteca, where it is possible to admire works by Giotto , Leonardo , Raphael and Caravaggio, to the Pio-Clementino museum, where you can admire Greek and Roman sculptures, up to the Gregorian Egyptian museum, which includes artifacts and mummies from ancient Egypt.

Inside the basilica it is possible to admire the majesty of the interior and the considerable size of the dome. There is no shortage of important works such as the canopy designed by Bernini and the Pietà by Michelangelo.
