Know before you go
- Keep in mind that the Vatican Museums provide free entrance for visitors who are (according to the requirements stated by the Vatican City) at least 74% disabled by presenting the appropriate certification and, if one needs assistance from another person, that person also receives a free entrance
- Please inform the activity provider if you fit into these requirements and they will remove the entry tickets fee from the price of the tour
- The Basilica of St. Peter's may be subject to unscheduled closings and late openings for religious ceremonies. Because these are often last minute for security reasons, the activity provider may not have time to notify guests. In that event, they will provide you with a complete experience by exploring the Vatican Museums in more detail
