Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • A dress code is required to enter places of worship and selected museums. No shorts or sleeveless tops allowed. Knees and shoulders MUST be covered for both men and women. You may risk refused entry if you fail to comply with these dress requirements
  • Food and drinks are not allowed in the museums except for bottled water
  • Near public transportation
  • Travelers should have a moderate physical fitness level
  • Because of the growing popularity of the current pope Francis and his intense activity in organising mass events in the Vatican some areas might get closed last minute without previous notice. This has already happened this year and can happen again during your Vatican tour: the Sistine chapel and/or the Basilica of Saint Peter might not be accessible. In case of such events our tour guide will provide you with a valuable alternative focusing the tour inside the Vatican museums.
  • This is a private tour/activity. Only your group will participate

Skip the line is the way to go. There is so much to see, that I do not recommend combining the Sistine Chapel tour and the Colosseum tour together. Its just way too much on the body.

We got a lot of great information from our guide. The only downfall was we felt rushed through the Sistine Chapel and felt like herded cattle the entire time. We traveled in early May, so it wasn't even the height of the tourist season. I can't imagine doing this peak season.
