4.2
#4 of 6 in Museums in Vatican City
Museo del Tesoro della Basilica di San Pietro holds a collection of objects offered as gifts to the Vatican, often given by kings and princes. Among the items are church ornaments, statues, papal mitres, and other various gifts. Of particular interest in the collection is the monument to Sixtus IV by Antonio del Pollaiolo, a Florentine artist. As is often the case with tourist attractions in Italy, there is little information provided in English, so a little research ahead of time goes a long way to fully appreciating your visit. Museo del Tesoro della Basilica di San Pietro is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Vatican City Edition.
