Always half of multiple visitors who coming to Rome can not miss the opportunity to visit the Vatican Museums. The Vatican is the heart of the Catholic church, it is the smallest state in the world with an area of 49 hectares and with just 900 inhabitants. By reserving your visit with us you will be able to admire the great beauty of the most important works in the world kept in the Vatican museums, founded by Pope Julius II in the 16th century. It all began with the discovery of the Laocoon Group in 1506 which laid the foundations for the construction of the Museum. Laocoon was a priest who according to Greek mythology tries to convince the Trojans not to accept the wooden horse that the Greeks had given them. Pope Julius sent Giuliano da Sangallo and Michelangelo Buonarroti to examine the work found in a vineyard near the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, after examination on their advice he decided to buy the work from the owner of the vineyard. To date you can admire Laocoon which is located in the Vatican museums in the octagonal courtyard.
