The Basilica of Saint Peter was born on the place where the First Apostle was originally crucified and buried; within it we can find what can only be described as absolute masterpieces, such as the Pietà by Michelangelo, the Cattedra di S. Pietro, the monument of Urbano VIII and the Baldacchino by Bernini.
THE Vatican museums consist in 13 sub-museums, hosting one of the most beautiful artistic collections on the planet. The greatest treasures are the works of Greek and Roman antiquity, as well as the Egyptian and Etruscan art collection. The Art Gallery houses frescoes by Raphael, Caravaggio and Leonardo da Vinci, while the Museums include frescoed rooms, such as the Appartamento dei Borgia by Pinturicchio, the Stanze di Raffaello and the famous Sistine Chapel.
