Marvel at the works of art in the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica, on a 3-hour tour in the company of a top Vatican guide.
Your tour begins at the gates of Vatican City, home to the world-famous Vatican Museums and the current home of Pope Francis. Lines to enter the magnificent halls and galleries are long, but luckily for you this tour includes skip-the-line entry so you'll be able to walk right in.
Following a tour of the Museums’ highlights, you'll enter the stunning Sistine Chapel, where Michelangelo’s vivid frescoes may well change your perception of life and the universe. Then you'll make your way into St. Peter’s Basilica through a door behind the chapel, and have the opportunity to admire the acclaimed major works of art and the architectural detail of the interior.
Afterwards you'll pass through the Basilica’s Holy Door. This is an act of huge significance for Catholic pilgrims, as the Holy Door is normally bricked closed but it is opened every 25 years during the Papal Jubilee Year.
This Holy Year of Mercy commenced on 8 December 2015 and is an Extraordinary Jubilee, occurring outside the normal cycle, and is a unique opportunity for you to pass through the Holy Door of St. Peter.
The tour ends at St Peter’s Square.
