Came back from visiting the Vatican Museum and was glad we got this app. The quality and production are really great. We also listened to Rick Steve's and a friend rented the museum audio tour. The museum audio tour is way more comprehensive and can give you details on almost every exhibit which can be a bit tiring.

This app, however, provides a very good highlight tour and multimedia guide. What I really enjoyed is the photo galleries. One of the Raphael's room was under renovations so seeing the pictures allowed us to see what it should look like. Also in the Sistine Chappel it was great also to view the photos (wish you could zoom though) on the iphone which allowed you see more details that were difficult to see. Also the photos followed the audio and will guide you to where you should focus - such as where is that self-portrait in the room.

Overall well worth the investment, and actually cheaper than the museum guide and you can't bring that back home :)

excellent basic tour


As an art history teacher who has done 8 trips through the Vatican with and without students , this is a great introduction to the basic Vatican museums . I would like to see the gallery photos expanded that you see by turning the device sideways , and wish all the numbers were video over voiced. I would love other museums and parts of the Vatican covered and st. Pete's , Fran Angelico's , St. Nicholas chapel, and the other museums , like the carriage museum covered as an add on to the one day tour shone . Also more info hot spots and perhaps a chronology of the Popes. thanks for a great education tool and an enjoyable afternoon re- living the Vatican tour with my daughter . I am giving this to my new chaperone as an intro.

Worth it. Great app.


We used this app for the Sistine chapel. With the dramatic music and close up pics to enhance the narrative, i was moved to tears hearing about the history and meaning of each art piece (over one hour of info on Sistine alone-broken down into different categories). Multiple tour guides w their groups came in went as we listened in admiration. Highly recommend headset w this. We used y connector to plug in both of ours. Great app. Better than rick steve tours.
