    Additional Info
    • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
    • Also, please remember that the Sistine Chapel is a holy place, and attire must be appropriate for the visit. Both men and women are asked to wear clothing that covers at least the shoulders and knees. Walks of Italy cannot be held responsible for denied entry due to improper dress. Please note that, since the chapel is at the end of the Vatican visit, it is sufficient to bring extra coverings with you and put them on before our entrance to the holy areas.
    • While the Vatican Museums are equipped with elevators for wheelchair and stroller access, they are not conveniently located on the group tour route and only give access to specific sections of the Museums. We advise clients to contact Walks Customer Service Team to make further arrangements.
    • Please note that guests may only carry small handbags inside the Vatican Museums. Larger backpacks and big pointy umbrellas etc must be left at the cloakroom. It is the responsibility of the guest to return to the Vatican Museums entrance to collect these after the tour.

    • Please ensure that all members of your party have a valid ID on them on the day of the visit. This is particularly important for guests who have qualified for child reduction.

    Fabrizio did a great job working his way through the crowds. He was very informative (sometimes too much!) and the tour went for nearly 3 hours and 15 minutes. The kids got a bit bored in the end! The Sistine Chapel and its magnificence makes the long trek worth it in the end.

    Hello Michael O, Thank you for your feedback from your recent Vatican tour, we appreciate you taking the time to share it! We agree that the Vatican and the awe inspiring Sistine Chapel is a must see while in Italia, although we understand that sometimes it can be a little too informative for younger children. We will certainly be taking on board your comments for Flavio and all of the team to consider for the future! Warmest regards, The Walks Team

    Very knowledable guide, very good tour even on a busy day. Tour guide pointed out things I would have never realized. Skip the line is good but still can get backed up at some points, but tour guide worked through it marvelously!
