Description

On this private 3-hour walking tour your expert guide will escort you on a fascinating journey through history, antiquities and art masterpieces. 

Features of this private tour of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel & St. Peter’s Basilica:

  • Private guide for 3 hours
  • Prepurchased skip-the-line tickets (available upon request)
  • Privileged entrance to St. Peter’s basilica

 

At the Vatican museums, you will hear amazing stories about the Vatican itself and the artists who made it the world's richest storehouse of art, culture and history.  Your private guide will show you the most important galleries and works as you make your way to the Sistine Chapel, which thrills visitors with its majesty and the brilliance of Michelangelo.  

Painted by Michelangelo in the early 16th century, the Sistine Chapel ceiling frescoes (best known for the iconic Creation of Adam) are a priceless collection of masterpieces.

With your guide you’ll be able to take the “VIP back door” into St. Peter’s basilica, avoiding the endless security lines outside.  As you step into the church see if your jaw doesn’t drop!  There is not an inch of undecorated space in this massive church.  Resting on 800 pillars and able to hold over 60,000 worshippers, the church houses a mind-boggling quantity of artworks of every type imaginable.  Among these the most precious is the Pietà, Michelangelo's moving magnum opus sculpted in marble.

Finally, stroll St. Peter's Square and take in the magnitude and splendor of the largest church in Christendom from the exterior.  

Please remember that all visitors are required to have their shoulders and legs covered to below the knee when visiting the Vatican City, and that the Vatican Museums are closed on Sundays and religious holidays.
