Know More about this tour

After meeting your tour guide in the morning or afternoon (your choice), the expedition starts at the Vatican Museums, where you will be exposed to a plethora of Roman art from 3 artistic styles: Baroque, Renaissance, and Medieval. In turn, you will also see ancient Roman sculptures, mosaics, and art-craft. Your guide will explain over 2,000 years of Roman history along the way.

Enter the Raphael Rooms, a suite of four reception rooms, and take in their gorgeous frescoes. Paired with Michelangelo’s frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, they are the most famous fresco sequences that mark the High Renaissance period in Rome.

The journey continues as you make your way to the Sistine Chapel. Upon entrance, our guides will explain the life, times and works of Michelangelo and the patron of this chapel, Pope Julius II. As you enter, imagine a work of art so vast that it paints nine scenes of a story. This is Michelangelo’s ceiling fresco in the Sistine Chapel. Your eyes will thank you for the beauty they have just witnessed.

It only gets better as you walk through one of the largest churches in the world, and one of the most recognized works of Renaissance architecture, St. Peter’s Basilica. St. Peter’s was designed by the great artists Donato Bramante, Carlo Maderno, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and Michelangelo, and holds up to 20,000 people. You will also see Pietà, the most recognized religious sculpture by Michelangelo.

  • Excellent tour but I recommend you do this only after you are well rested. We did it on our first day in Rome and it is hard to take in everything if you are jet-lagged! Guide excellent, knowledgeable, friendly. Definitely worth it to skip the line alone!

  • Eva was an awesome guide! Extremely knowledgable and pleasant.

  • Great experience and good knowledge making it very enjoyable

  • Amust do. Private was the only way to go with all the crowds. Took a star off because no one called us to let us know the vatican St peter's bascilica was closed that week every day until 2 so we did not get to go even though we paid big bucks for the tour. We would have rescheduled to a later time

  • Mauricio Morris our guide was lovely and very patient. I had booked this private tour as I was travelling with my 70 year old parents who had done Rome before but since we had a day to spare in Rome, thought it would be good to have a refresher!

    Mauricio was perfect for what we wanted. Really patient and went out of his way to provide us with as much explanation as possible and to show us as much as he could - both on and off the tourist map. He even guided us to a lovely restaurant for lunch.

    All in all a really good experience and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to visit Rome and do it comfortably.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Not the cheapist of tours, but as they say you what you pay for. In the end it was only the 2 of us with the tour guide. Her knowledge of the vatican was outstanding. The 3 hours that the tour took just flew by in a heartbeat. Would recommend this tour to everyone.

  • Our guide was 20 minutes late. Her English was terrible. We were only happy to skip the lines.

  • This was, hands down, the best tour we have ever taken!!!! and #34;Mama and #34; Marissia was so adorable and knowledgable. She shared things that I know other guides didn and #39;t because of her personal and family research. If we ever get a chance to come back, I will only want her for my guide.

  • It was so crowded this particular day. Hard to hear and learn with crowd
