    Brilliant. Absolutely essential to miss the massive queues. Vatican Museumwas incredible and tour was about the right length here. Cistine Chappel and St Peter the real highlight though. Tour guide excellent and great detail

What To Expect

The Vatican has been commissioning and collecting art from the early days of the Catholic Church and the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica contain a treasure trove of western art, including many masterpieces from the Renaissance era. Explore the Vatican collections on this guided tour with fast track entry. Over 6 million visitors come to the Vatican museums every year, so there are always long lines to get in. A professional guide will pick you up at the meeting point and lead you to a Vatican Preferred Partner entrance that will allow you to bypass the queues and head straight into the museums. The collections in the museums are vast and can take hours to explore. The multi-lingual guide will introduce you to some of the better known highlights of the collections, including the Gallery of Tapestries, Gallery of Geographical Maps, and the Raphael Rooms. After touring the galleries, head into the Sistine Chapel and admire the magnificent frescoes on the walls and ceiling. Don’t miss Michelangelo’s masterpieces in this room, especially the frescoes of *The Last Judgement* and *The Creation of Adam*. Once you have completed the tour of the museum, head into St. Peter’s Basilica to see one of the holiest shrines in the Catholic world, and the resting place of St. Peter, founder of the Catholic Church.

  • Eve Lyn 14 Jul 2018
    Our guide was very attentive to the group’s need. Enjoyed it very much.
  • Lila Dolores 8 Jul 2018
    The tour was helpful in terms of having us go around the notable spots in the Vatican. However, I'm not sure if it was the huge tourist crowd during the time of our tour, but it was sometimes hard to catch what the guide was telling us
  • mingta 7 Jul 2018
    Nice tour and good explanation about the history.
  • Wai Yeung 4 Jul 2018
    Easy booking process. The guide was professional and used different materials to assist participants to understand more about the history, recommended to join.
  • Goldman 4 Jul 2018
    The sites have historical values beyond words, grand, beautiful and majestic. The tour guide Roberto was knowledgeable. Unfortunately the radio receiver did not work half of the time. We spent way too little time in St. Peter’s cathedral and the square. Worst of all, I didn’t realize that the last stop of the tour was a gift shop, which obviously was related to the tour company. Would consider another tour company next time.
  • chi yuen 28 Jun 2018
    Must join, skip the ultra long queue, if I’m in the queue, I will just give up
  • Launcelot Dwight III 27 Jun 2018
    Skip the line is a must. Im thankful that we opted to get it. it was raining on our scheduled time and it helps a lot to skip the line. Tour comes with an earphone which makes the walking tour more interesting since you can hear the tour guide even your few meters away from her
  • Man Chiu 23 Jun 2018
    We had a great time with the tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, her instructions were very clear, do not to lose anyone during the visit. We skip a Long line to get into the Vatican City which saved a lot of time for our visit!
  • Camille Julienne Miguel 23 Jun 2018
    Cannot recommend it enough! It’s beyond beautiful and also the price is worth it. You can avoid very long lines. I just wish the transfers were return transfers. Note that it’s just one way. You have to make your way back on your own, but I guess it allows you to explore more around the area after the tour.
