Visitors to Rome have their hands full choosing among dozens of Vatican tours, but this skip-the-line package makes it a little easier. Choose between three tours, each designed for a particular kind of traveler. See as little as just the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica, or spend three hours on a comprehensive tour of the Museums, Chapel, and St Peter’s.
What to Expect
Your tour starts at Borgo Vittorio Street, where you meet your guide at the City Lights Tours office. Three tour options are available, each designed for a different type of traveler.

With the Vatican Silver Tour, skip the Vatican Museums to save time and visit the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica in roughly an hour and a half. This is ideal for travelers who have already seen the museums or who don’t have time to visit the art collections.

With the Vatican Gold Tour, spend two hours inside the Vatican Museums with a guide. Visit the Vatican Museum Galleries, Raphael Rooms, and the Sistine Chapel, and skip the lines at St. Peter’s Basilica.

The Platinum tour is the most comprehensive: take a 3-hour guided tour of all areas of the museums and stop at the most important works of art along the nine miles of galleries.

This tour was worth every penny. Our guide, Dina, was informative, friendly, helpful and spend extra time with us in the art gallery. We will forever be grateful to her!
