Know More about this tour

In this exclusive tour at the Vatican museums, you will enjoy a complimentary pick-up service from your accommodation with one of our professional english speaking drivers. You will be taken to the usually packed museum entrance where you will meet the tour guide and with your "skip the line" entry tickets, you will skip the huge entry line and access directly the metal detector security check. 
The tour will begin in a gorgeous panoramic terrace that offers a stunning view of Saint Peter's dome overlooking the Vatican gardens; the perfect spot to take a great picture! The guide will then walk you through all the highlights of the museums which include masterpieces and artefacts from different cultures and civilizations. You will enter the Pio Clementine museum, famous for its unique Greek/Roman ancient statues such as the Laocoon group, you will gasp at the length of the enormous Tapestry Hall, then through the Hall of the Painted Maps, you will enter the Sistine Chapel whose impact in history, religion and visual arts has no equal in the world. All of this in a small and intimate group of maximum 10 people since we don't want to make our clients feel uncomfortable in big groups. 
After visiting the Sistine Chapel, through a special door available only if accompanied by your tour guide, you will reach the largest Catholic church in the world: Saint Peter's Basilica. This is where Michaelangelo's sculpture "Pieta" is kept and the tombs of the popes including St. John Paul II's and St. Peter the Apostle.
The tour ends in St. Peter's square, where you will admire Bernini's colonnade and the stunning façade of the basilica.
At last, for those interested in purchasing religious articles or official Vatican products, the tour guide will take you to the official Vatican gift shop and eventually show you the nearest taxi station or subway.
