Tour Description

Our Pristine Sistine Vatican with Breakfast Tour starts early in order to be among the first to enter the Vatican - before the area even opens to the general public. Our day will begin with a very special experience: breakfast in the Pinecone Courtyard, where we'll enjoy a buffet of hot and cold offerings and take time to soak up the ambience of our peaceful surroundings.

Our Vatican visit ends with a full tour of St. Peter’s Basilica, but don't worry about those long lines - our small group will slip through an underground tunnel that takes us directly into the Basilica! From there, we'll see all of the most important works of art and architecture, including Bernini’s Baldachin, Michelangelo’s Pietá, the enormous dome, and more!

Cannot fault this tour nor the guide. Alessandra was the perfect guide, extremely knowledgable without being stuffy, kind, considerate and with a great sense of humour. Brilliant! Perfect!

Great Tour! We were a little late getting started and it put us less than first in the sistine Chapel so it was pretty crowded already. Of course it wasn't as crowded as it usually is!!

This tour was absolutely a blast. It was crowded, but the guide Paola really helped to navigate us through while providing helpful commentary. I had a slight issue before the tour but the customer service was prompt, efficient and just lovely. I would recommend walks of Italy to everyone!

Easy check in greeting. Our guide, Paulino (sp) was amazing, as she tied together a great deal of history, art, and religion. While we had visited the Vatican before, this tour truly helped us understand so much more. So much that I am starting to learn more about symbolism in the Church and more on art history. Would highly recommend the tour to anyone visiting the Vatican.

Outstanding tour and guide. This was our best day in Rome. We loved the knowledge our guide had of the art and the history. The small group was perfect for us as we like a more personal tour. We would HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone interested in the rich history of the Vatican and the grounds. I don't remember our guides name, but she was the best tour guide I have ever had. Please pass on to her that our group was impressed with her knowledge and truly appreciated her time and explanations.
