Thanks to this Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica tour including skip-the-line tickets, you'll breeze past the crowds and dig right into the top attractions of the Vatican State!

Begin at the Vatican Museum, which, as the primary archive of the world’s largest religion, is a bit like a city. Your guide will help you move among the over 1000 rooms of the museum packing all Vatican secrets into a unique experience. You’ll then head to The Sistine Chapel, the most famous part of the Holy city. Here you'll admire Michelangelo’s masterpiece ‘The Last Judgement’. The final stop of the tour is St. Peter’s Basilica. Lauded as the pinnacle of Renaissance architecture, this fascinating structure towers above the city and is perhaps the most recognizable dome in Italy. Inside you'll find yourself face to face with some renowned pieces of art, including Michelangelo's "Pietà" and Bernini's imposing Baldachin.
