What to expect

Discover the highlights of the world-famous Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica all in one intimate fully guided tour! After entering through the Pinecone Courtyard, this semi-private walking tour begins at the Vatican Museums where you'll skip the line and head straight inside.

Explore the myriad of paintings, sculptures, and tapestries the Museums have to offer. Your expert guide will then lead you to the Sistine Chapel. Bask in Da Vinci’s illustrious and renowned ceiling frescoes as your guide enlightens you on its all-important history.

At last, your guide will escort you into St. Peter’s Basilica, bypassing long lines of spectators, to provide an overview of this spectacular church. At the end of the tour, you can remain in St. Peter’s Basilica at your leisure, or you may return outside to St. Peter’s Square to admire Bernini’s clever optical illusion and the basilica’s heavenly façade.
