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.
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.
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.
Note: The special access passage between the Sistine Chapel and St.Peter's Basilica is closed on Wednesdays and subject to other unexpected closures during special celebrations/festivities, including the Easter ceremonies. On such days we will instead explore the magnificent Pinoteca Gallery.
