The Complete Vatican Tour With Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel & St. Peter's Basilica

This comprehensive Vatican tour takes you deep into the Musuems with an expert guide to show you the best of the collection at a relaxed pace.

Visiting the Vatican Museums is a huge job. With 4 miles of art and lines that stretch for hours, you could easily lose a day here and still leave feeling like you didn't really see it. Here, more than anywhere in the world, we recommend that you take a guided tour. Besides from benefitting from Skip the Line tickets at both the Vatican Museums entrance and St. Peter's Basilica; you'll get a carefully-planned itinerary and an expert guide, to tell you what exactly you're looking at.

On this Complete Vatican Tour, you’ll be treated to a comprehensive view of these huge galleries. In 3.5 hours you'll see a king's ransom of religious and secular treasures - from the most influential Ancient Greek & Roman sculptures, to incredible medieval tapestries and Renaissance masterpieces.

Start your tour the Vatican Museums where the carefully traced out an itinerary takes you past the most famous rooms and treasured artifacts, including the ancient sculpture that inspired Michelangelo's depiction of God in the Sistine Chapel (the Belvedere Torso), the mythical Greek sculpture Laocoön & His Sons, the mind-boggling Gallery of the Maps (so impressive when you consider that cartographers at the time had so little to work with), the Gallery of the Tapestries, and, of course, The Raphael Rooms - considered by many to be every inch as beautiful as the Sistine Chapel.

The highlight of Tour is, of course, the Sistine Chapel, where Michelangelo's towering frescoes threaten to overwhelm most visitors. Learn about the history behind them from your expert guide and pick out details that others will miss.

After the Museums you'll take the special, group-only entrance into St. Peter's (no waiting in lines) for a full tour of Christendom's most awe-inspiring basilica. From Bernini's towering baldachin to Michelangelo's pierless Pietá, your guide will give you the inside scoop on the art and architecture that make the church such a wonder, while also telling you the 120-year story of its construction.

With skip the line access, small groups, and some of the best guides in Rome, go beyond just seeing the Vatican, and explore its most interesting corners. You’ll decode the art, architecture, and history that make it one of the city's top attractions.
