Know More about this tour

This tour allows skip the line access, making it easier to see the many sights of the Vatican. An expert, English-speaking guide will offer eye-opening insight and context (along with some great stories) for each art work and architectural stop along the way.

Start at the museums and work your way through Raphael Rooms, the Belvedere Courtyard with Apollo Belvedere and Laocon and Sons, the Pinecone Courtyard, the Gallery of the Candelabra, the Gallery of the Maps, and the Gallery of the Tapestries. Then head to the Sistine Chapel just before closing time. Before entering, your guide will explain the stories behind the creation of these iconic frescoes as well as what they mean.

Spend about 20 minutes admiring the chapel independently, after which time your guide will lead you through a special door out of the chapel and directly into St. Peters Basilica for an independent visit.

Additional Info

Confirmation will be received at time of booking

As with all museums, particular galleries of the Vatican museums can sometimes be closed without prior notice and pieces removed for restoration or loan. In the case of a gallery being closed, your guide will take you to another section of the museums instead.

On rare occasions, when St. Peter's Basilica is being prepared for high masses or a special private event, including the Easter ceremonies, the tour group exit and/or the basilica itself can be closed without prior notification. Your guide will still give you an introduction to the church should you wish to visit this on your own at a later occasion.
