What You'll Do
  • Skip the long lines waiting to enter the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's Basilica
  • See the highlights of the Vatican Museums with a knowledgeable guide
  • Marvel at the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, a masterwork by Michelangelo
Take in the highlights of the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel on a private skip-the-line tour. Your guide will lead you past the long lines and directly to the most important works of art. Admire Michelangelo’s ceiling in the Sistine Chapel as well.
What to Expect
In this fantastic tour you will enjoy the highlights of the museum, and of course the remarkable Sistine Chapel in its entirety.

This is also where the bones of Saint Peter (considered by many to be the first pope) remain, housed in St. Peter's Basilica, a place packed to the teeth with internationally-recognized brilliant pieces of art. And if you just can't get your fill of the truck-loads of art these two buildings offer, the Vatican Museums should well and truly satisfy your desires. Or you might head over to St. Peter's Square, a piazza designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini in the 17th century, and another of Holy See's profound masterpieces.

The Vatican Museums are some of the most important museums in the world. The Vatican has a superb gallery, excellent Roman and Etruscan collections, and plenty more. Be sure not to miss the apartments that were decorated by Raphael. There is too much to see if you plan on going to the museums for one day. If you go for just one day, you just have time for the highlights. The highlight of the visit to the museums is the The Sistine Chapel known for Michelangelo's two most famous masterpieces: the ceiling, depicting numerous scenes from the Old Testament - such as the moment of Creation - together with various sybils and prophets; and the Last Judgement, occupying the entire wall behind the altar. But while you're there, don't forget to look at the other frescoes, by Botticelli, Ghirlandaio and others. The Sistine Chapel is also the meeting place of the conclave, which elects each new Pope.
