What to expect

Begin this Vatican tour at the Museum, a labyrinthine complex featuring over 1000 rooms that cover a jaw-dropping four millennia. Your guide has curated a bespoke route through the museum that packs in all the best bits, without leaving you lost for hours in its maze-like corridors. Your next stop is the world-famous Sistine Chapel, best-known for its sprawling ceiling art painted by Michelangelo in the 1500s. This seminal work is said to have changed the course of Western Art, because of its outstanding beauty and immense scope. The final stop is the spellbinding St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest church in the world as well as a Renaissance masterpiece and the focal point of the Vatican City. Access the Basilica with your skip-the-line ticket, walk its beautiful aisles, and admire the treasures it holds.
