What to expect

Join this first exclusive walking tour inside inside the Vatican City, discover the smallest state in the world in a 3-hour-long guided tour. Skip the line for Vatican Museums, take a special entrance to the Sistine Chapel and step inside St Peter Basilica.

Enjoy a unique walk behind the scenes of the Vatican: you will see the Pope Emerito House, the Vatican Radio Station, the Academy of Science, the Pope's former Summer Residence, the Vatican Government Palace, a piece of the original Berlin Wall and the Fontana dell'Aquilone, a lovely fountain with nice water games. This is a very exclusive visit, since it is possible to enter in the Vatican City only by special permission. In the Vatican Gardens it is completely forbidden to enter and the Popes typically walks around to stroll and pray.

Look St. Peter's Basilica from behind and admire the Cupola from a very singular perspective! Take some photo in the beautiful Vatican Gardens and discover one of the most prestigious Museums in the world, with 6 million visitors per year and 4 miles and half of masterpieces.

Visit the Gallery of Maps, the Gallery of Tapestries and Candelabras and the Chapel of Pio V before entering the Sistine Chapel and admire one of the greatest masterpieces in the world. Michelangelo's frescos are magnificent works that changed the course of arts forever: open your eyes and experience this spectacular view.

Still dreamy of Sistine Chapel's beauty, your Vatican guide will escort you through a special access to St Peter's Basilica, which will allow you to avoid long lines and save your time. Discover the largest church in the world, stroll through the striking aisles and admire Michelangelo's Pietà and the beautifully carved Bernini Pulpit.
