What to expect

Enjoy a professional guided tour of the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. With this tour, you'll have priority access, allowing you to skip the long entrance lines and enjoy a guided tour in a small group of no more than 11 people. When you arrive, your guide will lead you to the museums through a reserved VIP entrance. Then, you'll be able to admire their most impressive renaissance art collections including the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of Maps, the stunning Raphael’s Room and the world-famous Sistine Chapel.

After the Sistine Chapel, you'll be taken with exclusive access to St. Peter’s Basilica. Of course, you won't have to worry about the other visitors or losing your group, thanks to this VIP treatment, and to let you enjoy both the guide's commentaries and to walk around enjoying the beautiful works and taking photos, you'll be given a wireless headset to listen to your guide as you take in the beauty surrounding you.
