  • Skip the line for fast entry to the Vatican's most famous sights

What to Expect
Tour one of the holiest sites in Christendom on a 4-hour guided walking tour of the Vatican Museums including a comprehensive visit to the Sistine Chapel and the masterpieces of St. Peter’s Basilica. With exclusive skip-the-line access, saving you long waits in the lines that usually form outside one of the world’s most popular attractions.

Considered among the most important places in the history of human civilization, start your tour at the museum to see the important collections of art that various popes have acquired throughout the centuries.

Look out for renowned sculptures and masterpieces of Renaissance art. Feel the weight of history and get a sense of the sacred as you spy paintings by Raphael, Giotto, Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio and Michelangelo, including his masterwork in the Sistine Chapel.

Admire Bernini’s colonnade in St. Peter’s Square and go inside the Basilica. Built over the centuries by famous architects including Michelangelo, its iconic dome is one of the glittering symbols of Rome.

What to Remember
Please dress appropriately for extensive walking and sacred religious sites visits.

No umbrellas, trolleys, baby strollers, large bags and tripods will be allowed into the Museums.

Depending on the size of the group, the tour may run in one language (monolingual tour) or two/three languages (bilingua/multilingual tour). In bilingual/multilingual tours you will hear your language through the headset, while it will go automatically mute when the other foreign language is spoken.

Important: The visit inside St. Peter's Basilica is substituted by a visit to the Vatican Library on Wednesday morning tours (8:30 and 11:00 tours) due to the Papal Audience taking place every Wednesday.

Important: Due to the the Holy Year of Mercy and Jubilee celebrations, St. Peter’s Basilica is an active religious center and is strongly influenced by liturgical ceremonies and needs. The supplier is therefore not responsible for any inconvenience resulting from sudden closure of the Basilica.
