Tour Description

Covid Update. From August 6th, all Italy sites we visit will require clients and guides alike to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test completed within 48 hours prior to entry. They will also require a legal form of ID matching the vaccination or test results. This does not apply to children under 12. You can read more about it here.

Please note. Due to Covid restrictions the corridor between St. Peter's Church & the Sistine Chapel is temporarily closed to the public. The distance between the two sites without this access means that a guided visit inside St. Peter's Basilica will not be possible. To make the most out of your visit, your guide will give you a full introduction to the Basilica and explain how to visit the Basilica on your own after the tour.

More than the Sistine Chapel - this is the best of the Vatican Museums

Our Complete Vatican Tour goes beyond 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, our route through the Vatican Museums visits all the sights you wanted to see - plus some surprises you didn’t expect.

The pièce-de-resistance, of course, is the Sistine Chapel. By the time we arrive at the Chapel, your guide will have explained the stories and secrets behind the paintings; what they mean and why they’re so renowned.

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.
