Product code: 3354
Overview

The history of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica will be uncovered in the morning as you enjoy real skip-the-line access.

Did you know the Vatican Museums are nine miles long? And that they are in the top five of the most visited galleries in the world? If you are looking for a no-stress tour of their sensational art collections, we recommend you get the skip-the-queue semiprivate tour.

We have organised a group of 11 people maximum so you can enjoy a personal, customised experience with your guide and travel companions. Thanks to our real skip-the-line tickets and the expertise of our guides, you won’t waste a moment of your visit.

Therefore, you won’t miss any of their most intriguing artwork, like the amazing Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel. When you arrive, your guide will lead you to the Museum through our reserved entrance. You will then be able to admire their most impressive Renaissance art places: the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of Maps, the stunning Raphael’s Rooms and the world-famous Sistine Chapel.

After the Sistine Chapel, you will be taken, through exclusive access to St. Peter’s Basilica, skipping long lines. You don't need to worry about the other visitors or losing your group along the way.

We always guarantee headsets to our guests, to let them always enjoy both guide’s commentary and their own pace for curiosities and photos.

So glad we went early in the morning, to avoid the crowds which were heavy even in mid-October. We saw so much and learned about the Vatican. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

Our guide was really enthusiastic and knowledgeable. She shared many details about history, archaeology and the Vatican itself that inspired us to walk its grounds and continue reading once we came home. Thank you!
