Overview

Skip the line at both the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica with this walking tour. Led by an English-speaking guide, this tour maximizes time spent at the Vatican with visits to the Sistine Chapel, highlights of the Vatican Museums, and St. Peter’s Basilica. Select a start time that is convenient for your schedule.

What to Expect

Meet your guide near the Vatican Museums’ main entrance. Enjoy skip-the-line entry and follow your guide to see the most important works of art in the museums.

Listen to stories about the Popes throughout history while visiting several rooms including the Candelabra Gallery, the Gallery of Maps, and the Raphael Rooms. The tour continues in the Sistine Chapel.

Admire Michelangelo’s masterpieces inside the Sistine Chapel during free time. While inside this place of worship, visitors and guides are prohibited to talk, so your guide will explain the history of the space before entering the chapel.

After exploring the Sistine Chapel, choose between wandering through the Vatican Museums on your own or continuing the tour with your guide to St. Peter’s Basilica (a guided tour of the Basilica with skip-the-line entry is included).

The tour finishes after a guided walk through St. Peter’s Basilica.

Well organized tour

This place is a mad house and you need a chaperone! You also don't want to be standing in line in the heat for hours waiting to get in. Our Roman Guy guide was great - she funneled our group of ~ 15 people through...More

Great tour, hits all the high points

We did the Vatican tour with the Sistine Chapel and St. Peters, a tour which took about 3.5 - 4 hours. Lara was our tour guide and she was both kind and knowledgeable. Most impressive was that she didn't just have script memorized but was...More

It was very easy to find our guide, Maria, at the designated location. We learned that it would just be the three of us (me, my husband and our adult daughter) on the tour. It was a Friday afternoon and of course we were able...More

Superb - just the right amount of time and information

Enjoyed an absolutely stunning tour with Raffa from The Roman Guy. Last year we did tour on our own and it was pushy and chaos and hard to focus. Starting at 730am we were able to learn and walk through at a calm pace. The...More
