Good to Know

• Tours run every day except Sundays and religious holidays.
• Tour ends close to St. Peter's Square.
• Strict dress code: no skirts above the knee, no shorts, no bare shoulders (tank tops or sleeveless blouses), and you must wear shoes. You will not be permitted inside the basilica unless you are dressed appropriately. Since this tour goes into the Basilica through the Sistine Chapel, it is important that you respect the dress code.
• If there are children with you, please do not take the tour with your baby buggy. Vatican Museums allows you to take baby buggies into the Museum, but not inside the Basilica, therefore it is strongly recommended that you do not carry the buggy with you before entering the Museums, otherwise you will risk losing the group at the Sistine Chapel.
• Please note that on Wednesdays the tour will not enter the Basilica due to the Papal audience
• Spanish, French (in low season, requires a minimum of 4 people) and German tours may be led in multiple languages

Good but we had to stand right next to the tour guide

We had a great tour guide but we had to stand right next to him as the hearing aid was pretty useless...

Awesome tour and really great tour guide

Even though it was scorching hot on the day we took the tour, this tour was very nice and very enjoyable. The tour guide had complete information about everything and answered our questions patiently. Even though there were some people in our group of 40 who wanted her to go thru the tour faster she handled it pretty well. Much appreciation.

Very disorganised and crowded

Got to checkin place on time. Waited 3/4 hour in sun. Finally got guide who was very difficult to understand. Every 10 mins someone's earpieces didn't work. Guide kept running around trying to fix. Very frustrating for everyone.
