We’ve been to the Vatican museums before but our guide, Lucia, was really excellent and very friendly. Her commentary opened up a whole new level of meaning in the Sistine chapel.
Depending on the time slot you selected at checkout, your experience begins outside of the Vatican Museums. Access the Vatican through a special entrance with no lines, saving hours of waiting time.
Walk first through the Gallery of Maps and the Gallery of Tapestries, hearing your guide's commentary loud and clear through your personal headset. Snap photos in front of the Pigna statue in the Pinecone Courtyard before you continue to Raphael’s Rooms.
Spend the next part of the tour gazing upward at the Sistine Chapel, home to Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam and The Last Judgement. After, say farewell to your guide and continue to St. Peter’s Basilica to enjoy the church independently.
Please note that on Wednesdays, due to the weekly Papal Audience, St. Peter’s Basilica may be unavailable. Ensure you select a day other than Wednesday if you’re set on seeing the landmark.
Great tour with a really good and knowledgeable guide. Absolutely amazing to see, but overall it felt a bit rushed at times getting you to the finale of the chapel part with what are amazing paintings on the ceiling, of course.. definitely worth a visit...More
That was wow. My heart was singing while listening to Stefanie. She is so knowledgeable, so funny (I will miss her sense of humour), her story telling skills were amazing. After leaving Vatican I felt even more in love with history. History can be interesting....More
The skip the line bit of this tour is well worth it. I visited in February which is a quiet time of the year but the area was still heaving. The guide was good and approved by the Vatican so the narrative is all positive....More
