What to Expect
Explore one of the world’s most incredible art collections with an expert guide and set the agenda for this 3-hour tour of the Vatican. Choose which areas of the Vatican Museums you see and how long you spend in the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica.

Your guide will answer every question, ensuring you get the most from your visit. With exclusive, skip-the-line access, spend more time exploring, not waiting. See rooms such as the Pinecone Courtyard, Hall of Maps, Gallery of the Tapestries, Gallery of the Candelabra, and incredible Raphael Rooms. Your guide will bring works of art to life, pointing out things you would have missed on your own.

Continue to the Sistine Chapel and discover little details like Michelangelo’s boneless self-portrait, in which he expresses to the world that he would rather be skinned alive than paint the Sistine Chapel again!

Next, enter St. Peter’s Basilica through a special door to see the altar and marvel at Michelangelo’s La Pietà sculpture. Tour St. Peter’s Square, admire Bernini’s optical illusion. Spot the balcony where the Pope delivers his public audiences.

*Please be aware that due to “Jubilee Holy Year of Mercy” this year, St. Peter's Basilica closes without notice. Other areas of the Vatican will be substituted to ensure you have the best possible experience.
