Highlights of the Vatican Museums: Encyclopedic Museums Series, part 1
Enjoy an in-depth virtual visit with Jill Alexy to one of the most famous museums in the world. We will focus on just a few of the select highlights in the collection, and give you a sense of how they function "in-situ" and outside of a mere "collection".

About the Event
Enjoy a high-quality virtual visit to the treasures of the Vatican Museums.
Staying safe and staying home, you will enjoy a decade's worth of insights gleaned from leading pilgrims and patrons through the beauitful & compelling drama of sacred beauty. It is also a perfect opportunity to get some real *insider* information with a small group of online friends.
The theme of this virtual visit will focus on the collections of the Vatican Museums. Making use of the virtual tour provided by the museum itself, we will whisk through the top higlights of the collection, focusing on my personal favorites from the sculpture galleries. We will explore the history, theology, philosophy, and art of hidden gems and famous masterpieces. This visit will serve as a general introduction to the immensity of the Vatican & its many museumS, and all without the throngs of toursits and thousands of steps.
This is not a boring Zoom; this is a highly-interactive and highly-produced virtual cultural experience.
All the virtual walks will take place online, of course. To participate you will need a computer with a good (fast) internet connection, and Zoom downloaded onto your computer or device. We recommend that you have WhatsApp installed and working, but this is not necessary.
Once you register, all the log-in details, instructions, and directions will be sent to you via email.
As a courtesy, if you plan to no longer participate in the virtual tour, we ask you to please provide us with a cancellation notice at least 24 hours before the event. We cannot guarantee refunds for cancellations made with less than 24 hours' notice, though we will endeavor to do our best !
