EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

The Raphael Rooms on our Complete Vatican Tour

MORE THAN THE SISTINE CHAPEL, THE BEST OF THE VATICAN MUSEUMS.

Our Complete Vatican Tour goes beyond the expected to give you a real insight into the Vatican City. From the Sistine Chapel and Raphael Rooms, to incredible ancient sculptures you may never have heard of. We’ve drawn up a route through the Vatican Museums that visits all the sights you knew you wanted to see and some surprises you didn’t expect. And because we know it’s the stories that make a visit memorable, we’ll focus on them.

The pièce-de-resistance, of course, is the Sistine Chapel, where Michelangelo spent eight years of his life on his now-famous frescoes. By the time we arrive at the chapel, you’ll know not only the story behind the paintings, but what they mean and why they’re so renowned.

St Peter's Basilica, on our Complete Vatican Tour

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. We’ve timed our Complete Vatican Tour to guarantee that you’ll always have a tour inside the basilica (not to mention skip the lines!) because you’re really going to want a guide once you set foot inside.

Built over St. Peter’s tomb, the basilica is one of the world’s most important Christian sites and the world’s largest ancient basilica. It’s also one of the most striking architectural spaces, taking the best minds of the Renaissance more than 120 years to complete. Inside, we’ll explore Michelangelo’s Pietà, Bernini’s baldachin, and the chair of St. Peter, among other treasures.

Small groups & expert tour guides

EASY, ENTERTAINING, ENGAGING, COMPLETE.

We’re passionate about the Vatican – crazy about the art, architecture and history behind those huge walls – and our guides are too. We’ve spent years growing a team of experts that share our passion and who want to share that passion with you. While many operators fit 25 people plus in a Vatican tour group, we keep all of ours to only 15 people or fewer, so you’ll find it easy to keep pace with your guide, to hear them (we have headsets too) and to speak to them. Ask all the questions you want – our team love to show off and work hard to engage you.

To make your Vatican tour even easier and to be sure that you’re getting the best from every precious second, we use privileged entrance at the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica, bypassing general access lines that can stretch for hours at each site during high season.

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

We did 5 tours with Walks of Italy and they were all amazing. Thank you. Will definitely recommend to friends.
The tour was wonderful and elleanora was a great guide, she was enthusiastic and charismatic in carrying the tour. We enjoyed our time thoroughly!
There is so much amazing art work on this tour, it was a little overwhelming. Raphael's Apartment was so crowded that we didn't get to stop and look at the art, but that was not your fault. Again, all of your tour guides seem to really love their work and were happy to answer all questions.
Our guide, Francesco, was very knowledgeable and passionate about art. He made our tour extremely interesting and the tour group was just perfect. A great experience!
This tour was fantastic. Luigi was a great tour guide and definitely made the experience great. He pointed out important things to look at and took his time answering any and all the questions from the group. Would highly recommend for anyone.

Great tour! This was my second time going to the Vatican and I personally felt I discovered more with this tour. Our tour guide was great and knew her way around the Vatican.
the only criticism I have for this tour is that the ear piece/speaker system was pretty lousy unless the room was fairly quiet and the guide was close by
I found our guide to be most knowledgeable and learned so much! Really enjoyed the tour,
Found my guide Susanna very informative. She allowed for each member of our group to view/photograph and appriciate each area we visited without interrupting the overall flow of the tour. A great achievement considering the crowds we had to work our way through. Well done Susanna
Guiletta was amazing. Very knowledgeable and gave us a fantastic experience! The tour was more than I expected!

Susanna was fabulous. She had great delivery, knew her stuff and guided us through the Vatican and Basillica with ease ~ amazing given the crowds!
Camilla was superb! She was so knowledgeable and informative. She did a great job of navigating through the crowds to make our visit as pleasant as possible. Seeing the Vatican through this guided tour is the only way to go!

The tour was well organised, audio worked, skipping the line was so satisfying! Camilla was personable, funny and full of information. It was a great experience, certainly worth the money. Highly recommended!

Enza was an excellent guide. She maneuvered us through what we considered to be unsafe conditions in the Vatican museum and Sistine chapel. The Vatican personnel were not welcoming or attentive to the size of the crowds in several rooms. That is not a reflection on Walks of Italy.

Enza was fantastic. Her knowledge was excellent but she also looked after the group very well.
The guide was great. She kept things moving along, despite the very crowded Vatican.

The guide was great!
This tour was very good, Mauro was very informative and did a great job as a Guide. The sound wasn't great on my headset but Mauro did everything he could to improve this but it did take away from my experience.
The detailed descriptions, history and interpretation of art within the Vatican was incredible. Our guide used both humor and seriousness in his explanations. Again, we thought the tour was amazing and learned so much. Highly recommend.

Loved Claudia! Just wished that I Had more time at the Sistine Chapel. I will definitely use walks of Italy again.
Laura was also a very informative guide & we once again learnt a lot from her. It was nice that she would invite my children to come up to the front so they could see, ask them if they could hear her & not forget that they were part of the tour. Once again, very happy we booked this tour.

Guide was very, very good. It was very crowded and hot but she did the best she could under the circumstances. Again, I was thankful that we were in a small group, moving large groups through the Vatican is a nightmare. Next time we will probably do the early morning Sistine Chapel tour.

Excellent guide. Fantastic tour
Excellent guide. English was very good. Expertise was wonderful. We have now had tours with a few companies, this WALKS is the very best.
Maristela was awesome, very down to earth. She was warm and friendly. She was a wealth of knowledge. She gave us all the good pointers as we came to the vatican at a very crowded time of year. She let us sit on the bench to conserve our energy as this was a long tour. Very thorough.
Very informative, also enjoyed the extra information/ facts provided while waiting now and then. Mostly as the facts where of recent/ current times so not only did I get a tour of Roman history but also of today. Francesca was wonderful :)

A wonderful and informative guide. My only issue is with the sound as they were the frequency radios and were a little hard to hear at times. Our second walk was with the digital audio guides and they were much easier to hear.
Francesca was fabulous and extremely knowledgable ! She covered everything at the perfect depth. We will definitely recommend you to friends traveling to Rome. Thanks
Anna was great! She was fun, knowledgeable, and easy to listen to. Very pleased with her as out guide!
Lorenza was terrific!! Would definitely recommend !! Great tour

Our guide.was very good and informative. We enjoyed the tour very much and she was very easy to follow
Nice and knowledgeable guide and really enjoyed being able to walk with such a small group. Highly recommended.
The tour was great - my only complaint was that the tour guide was not allowed to guide us inside St. Peter's Basilica, but that was out of his control.
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the guide was excellent
So nice to be able to walk right in. Our guide was patient and super knowledgable.
Dario made sure that everyone on the tour could enjoy each item that he pointed out. He was clear about the items and we felt that we had a good overview of the collections, and that the tour was well paced and informative
Same as other tour.
Superb guide. Liked the humorous touches
Very passionate guide who was very knowledgable. The tour was not rushed and we spent quality time in the main areas of the museum and other areas of Vatican City. Good value for money. Thank you
Davide had an amazing knowledge of the art and treasures of the Vatican. He kept the group moving through the museum on a very crowded day without missing the highlights. He explained the history and interpretations of each piece, answering our questions as he went along. Wonderful morning tour!
Thanks a lot for an informative and educational tour! Giovanni was a great guide to the Vatican. We´re so happy we booked this tour and got past the endless queues quickly.
Claudia was great, her English was perfect. She was very knowledgeable and made the tour enjoyable.
Wonderful guide! She gave great history and had a sense of passion and took great care of the group.
The your was really well organized and the best part of our tour was Francesco

Excellent tour guide!!! She was very knowledgeable and a great story teller. It was an absolute pleasure to be on this tour. Very cool!

Really enjoyed the tour and the guide, the amount of art is overwhelming so having someone guiding you is a must
Camilla was an excellent guide, and her wide knowledge and pleasant manner greatly enhanced our Vatican Tour experience, Brava! (Well done!)
Excellent! Another fantastic tour guide!
Our guide Marianna is fantastic at her job! She is extremely knowledgable, very friendly and makes the tours very interesting and enjoyable! I would thoroughly recommend this business and in particular Marianna as a guide. We had her as our guide for both the Vatican tour and Colosseum tours.
Excellent tour and guide
Our guide, (regrettably, I can't remember her name but her name starts with the letter J, Jovita or something) was so knowledgeable and really enjoyed her commentaries.
Doriana's knowledge and approach confirmed our thoughts that a tour of the Vatican Museum, et al is the right way for us to enjoy and learn from our visit. We've been talking up our experience!
Excellent tour fabulous guide would definitely recommend
The best
Claudia was fantastic & gave a fascinating overview of this incredible museum. She was really clear & easy to understand. The Vatican was extremely crowded & busy but she definitely optimised our experience. Thank you
Enza was an excellent guide who brought the history and facts to life. I also liked the group size (15) which was manageable. The audio was also very good. The other team members we met at the beginning were also helpful and friendly too.
Information said groups no bigger than 12 but we had 15. Other than that, all fine; great guide; good tour; perhaps moving a bit too fast, but a lot of ground to cover in 3 hrs; maybe option to extend to 4 hrs or 2x2.5 hrs to allow more in-depth tour.
Excellent guide--so knowledgeable. Didn't drag it out.
The tour was excellent. Enza - I believe that was her name- was an excellent tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a wonderful time.
The Skip-the-Line was invaluable. we walked passed hundreds of people, straight in. Julietta was brilliant. Funny and informative, showed us some fantastic detail we would never have seen otherwise. Having the headsets was also invaluable. I would not hesitate to recommend.
We had a great time even in the rain!
Whilst the Vatican was extremely busy that day being a public holiday Claudia, our guide, was very calm and organised and expertly guided the group through the many rooms of the museum and St Peters Basilica without any problems. A very good tour. Thank you.
We had a great experience! The knowledgeable guide explained everything we saw and provided many details that we would have missed had we toured on our own.
Francisca was very informative and helpful!
Claudia was superb! A great tour of a beautiful place!!!
Guido was fantastic. His knowledge was great and his English fantastic his passion for the art was clear. Beyond my expectations.
Luigi was very informative and enjoyable ! He has a real passion for religious history and we were able to learn a lot from him. He was also very kind. We enjoyed our tour so much.
A fabulous experience, Guido displayed a vast reservoir of knowledge and a real passion for the subject matter. I look forward to joining your tours again.
Bruno was a superb guide! He was instructive, knowledgable, approachable, well-organized, authoritative, with a dollop of humor. Kudos!
Our guide Claudia, was great! We really enjoyed the tour, she explained everything really well and answered all our questions. And the most important thing, she did everything with a smile :). Thank you for the experience, we will for sure reccomend it!

Claudia was delightful and really brought the Vatican to life for us. We found her to be incredibly knowledgeable and we really enjoyed the way she conducted the tour.
Guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
Maria was a great guide. We appreciated the headsets, especially in crowded areas.
Felt a bit rushed - tough to even keep up when moving through Vatican. Still, quite enjoyable.
Our guide was fantastic, informative and it was obvious she enjoys what she does! We had a great time!
Best tour in Rome yet!
Our tour guide was great. She was extremely knowledgeable and made this a most enjoyable experience.
It was an EXCELLENT tour - Julietta was absolutely delightful - so knowledgeable, she made the tour so interesting and full of humour. We liked that it was only a small group of 14.

Jeb was awesome!!
It was worth every penny.:-) Luca was entertaining and highly knowledgeable. I also appreciate that he has respect for my religion.
Great tour and great guide! She was very knowledgable and it was CRAZY busy that day and she handled it very well and helped us through it! I'm very sorry but I don't remember her name. She was petite and slightly short with short, red, curly hair. She was amazing.
Vittorio was fantastic, the informations were very helpful!
Julietta is one of the best guides I have seen! She made the chaotic situation of the Vatican very bearable with her humor and her incredible knowledge! Thanks Julietta!
Great tour and loved our guide!
Julietta was outstanding! Knowledgable, entertaining and interesting.
Hello! My friend and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Julietta!!! We were not expecting such a wonderful guide, so well spoken and entertaining!! I learned so much despite this being my third trip to the Vatican! Thank you greatly for introducing us to Julietta!!!!
Jeb was a great tour guide helping us wade through the insane crowds at the Vatican. You could definitely tell that he had a lot of great information to provide. I was thirsting for more information at the end of the tour. I wish I had another 4 hours with him to explore!
Our Vatican Tour was incredibly well-planned, organized, and our guide was so knowledgable about each piece we visited! We felt very comfortable listening to her and asking questions. Will definitely book this one the next time I bring a new family member to Rome!
Mona was terrific. She's very knowledgable, very funny and warmly interested in all her customers. She has a difficult job, escorting various people through the crush of other tourists. She did an admirable job, never losing her focus, nor her care of her charges. She gets a "10"!
Claudia was WONDERFUL! She was incredibly knowledgeable and provided a great, in depth tour of the Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Basilica.
Claudia was wonderful. She was a charming, considerate host, and she gave cllear and thoughtful explanations. Despite the crowds, and difficult conditions she was calm and we'll organised.

What can I say, other than it was the ultimate experience. We were so lucky to get David as our guide, his passion for art, history and religion was inspiring ! Would book this one again in a heartbeat, it was up there as our best tour in Italy!
Maria is very warm, friendly, sweet, and very knowledgeable. My husband and I enjoyed this tour very much and thought that Maria was an excellent guide.
Giovanni was also a great guide, full of knowledge and a capacity to deliver the information in a very easy way. Both great.
This tour was fantastic!! Camilla had so much knowledge to share and she kept us engaged throughout the entire visit. I learned so much about Vatican/Roman history that I didn't know before. 5 stars!

Excellent, knowledgable guide. Well organized. Worth every penny! Thank you.
Cecilia was amazing! This is the best tour I've ever been on. The amount of information that she knew was astounding. I'm pretty sure she knew about every object in the 14 Vatican Museums. She answered all our questions and was very helpful with giving directions even after the tour ended.
Uta was a great guide. Very friendly, knowledgeable and the pace of the tour was just right,
Our tour guide Uta was very good. I have already your tour to several people.
She's a very professional guide and also very knowledgable on all the aspects we covered in the tour, thanks to Uta for a job well done, I will recommend your tour and Uta anytime. Thanks again
very informative and a joy to be with!!!
Uta provided and shared her passion for the Vatican with us and we thoroughly enjoyed our limited time inside the Vatican through her eyes.
Fabrizio was amazing..
Guide Maria was a gem. Very funny and knowledgable. Believe she said she was a 4th generation Roman, which made for an authentic experience.
Excellent guide, highly informative! She kept our group quiet at the Sistine Chapel as it should be. The guards showed appreciation for it. While other tour guides kept on their spiels & looked so amateurish making noises in a consecrated
Uta was wonderful! We were very pleased with the tour! The audio equipment also worked very well.
Our guide was great. Very knowledgeable and we learned a lot. Enjoyed the tour.
Maria was so wonderful!! The Vatican tour was really interesting and considering how much there is to see, she did a great job of giving us as much information as possible in such a short amount of time!!
Francesca our guide was amazing!! She made this day so unique and told us the stories about the vatican in such a way that it was as if we were watching a movie. Fantastic day and many thanks for making this day extra special!
Tour guide was also excellent but Spent too much time talking outside the meusem at the start of the tour.
Very good guide, judged the level of information we wanted perfectly
Very informative, and good pace. Enjoyed our time at the vatican.
Loved the tour guide and tour. Would recommend to everyone.
Enza was most interesting and informative. We had a number of walking tours whilst in Rome and Enza was by far the best guide

Juliette was informative funny and attentive to all the group and kept the children interested. She is an excellent guide and we came away feeling very satisfied with the whole experience.
Juliette was a fantastic guide. She made a crowded almost unbearable tour entertaining and enlightening. Juliette was able to engage two small children who were a part of our group and keep them from being cranky and overwhelmed. Very impressed!

Our guide was most helpful & extremely knowledgeable. He was better than most college professors I studied under. I could have listened to him for hours, and all I remember of the young man's name is Mr. T. He. Was simply fantastic! I wish I could thank him again. Really, he was that good!!!
Guide knew her stuff and provided the right amount of information. Well articulated and concise.
The guide was very patient with all our continuos questions and also very knowledgable...wish we had more time with her

Great tour and very knowledgable guide. I loved the small group tour as it provided far better opportunity to ask questions.
Great tour! It was incredibly helpful to have Simona to guide us, explaining everything we are curious about in perfect detail. Good timing as well; I didn't feel restless or tired by the end of the tour, either.
Another great guide who entertained and informed us throughout the tour.
Our tour was great. Anna was our guide and she was very informative and funny. The thing we loved most about our guide is that she provided more of a historical perspective of the Vatican and was not "churchy" about it. We would absolutely recommend this tour.
Tour was perfect, mainly because our guide was so knowledge and humorous. Hats off to Camiila .Syd and Liz Brittain
Thanks Laura for a very informative and interesting tour, well worth seeing and hearing the history of interesting city.
