Know More about this tour

Meet your guide near the entrance to the Vatican Museums to begin your 3-hour visit to three of the top attractions in Rome - the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica. Skip-the-line entry, getting in an hour before the doors open to the public, allows you to visit these three sights in one morning.

Begin your tour at 8am, one hour before doors open to the public.Your guide will passionately lead you through the fascinating galleries of the Vatican Museums, providing you with historical facts and leaving you plenty of time to take photos and to absorb the breathtaking beauty of the masterpieces, like those at the Raphael rooms.

Then you will enter the amazing Sistine Chapel, where you will have the chance to admire the magnificent Michelangelos frescoes in their full beauty. After having looked up to some of the legendary frescoes such as 'The creation of Adam' and 'The Last Judgement,' you will visit the extraordinary St. Peter's Basilica (the largest ancient basilica in the world) where you will remain speechless in front of the touching Piet of Michelangelo and will become mesmerized by the swirling bronze sculptures of the master Bernini.

Note that you can choose between two group size options for this tour - a group of 24 people, or a smaller group of no more than 13 people. With the small-group option, you also get an Italian breakfast included before your tour begins.
