Enjoy a guided tour of St. Peter's Basilica (and no lines!)

Located outside of the Vatican Museums, St. Peter’s Basilica has its own entrance and its own rules, with limited hours for guided tours. Our Complete Vatican Tour ensures that you get inside the Basilica (not to mention skip the lines!) with your expert guide to enjoy Michelangelo’s Pietà, Bernini’s baldachin, and the chair of St. Peter, among other treasures.

A truly complete Vatican experience

We’ve spent years growing a team of passionate experts who want to share the Vatican with you. Combine them with a small group and you have a recipe for sight-seeing perfection! We also use privileged entrances at the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica, bypassing general access lines that can stretch for hours at each site during high season.

The Complete Vatican Tour offers an uncompromising, unhurried exploration of the world’s most fascinating independent state, for those that want a truly complete Vatican experience.

Wasn't sure we were at the right location to meet, but once we met up, everything else was informative with a nice touch of humor.

Sev was an outstanding guide — he was absolutely professional, friendly, and knowledgeable throughout the entire tour! His knowledge of the Vatican was both impressive and very educational — Deb and I very much enjoyed every part of this excellent tour (due in large part to Sev’s expert guidance, passion, and instruction)! He represents Walks of Italy very well — we would definitely use Walks of Italy when we come back (and will recommend it to our friends and family)!
