Tour Details

Aug.20, 2022 (the day before cruise departure)

This tour takes place in the afternoon. Transfers on request*


The tour focuses on LGBTQ aspects of the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel, including Michelangelo’s masterworks.

Skip the lines with us and view the unparalleled collection of artwork at the Vatican Museums. With our gay/gay-friendly guides you will experience the hidden LGBTQ histories housed in these venerable halls.

Be mesmerized by Michelangelo’s Pietà and by the Raphael Rooms. View the masterpiece depicting St. Sebastian, the patron saint of homosexuality, and bask in the beauty of Raphael Sanzio’s masterpiece “The Parnasus” featuring the poet Sappho, an icon of lesbian lore and female sexuality.

Plunge into the unveiled homosexuality of Pope Julius III and his infamous young lover, Innocenzo del Monte, whose tempestuous love affair rocked the church.

Discover the most epic love story in Rome: the one between Emperor Adrian and Antinous.

Finally, take your time to enjoy the ‘Last Judgement’ in the Sistine Chapel, Michelangelo’s expression of his turbulent soul.  Eagle-eyed visitors will find more than one character in this amazing masterpiece engaging in homosexual/bisexual behavior (such as two male angels kissing).
