Overview
The Vatican Museums contain a vast art collection roughly nine miles long spread over 1400 rooms, chapels, and galleries. It is impossible to see all of the collection in one day. With this tour, make the most out of your visit by seeing some of the Vatican’s best highlights—including the Sistine Chapel and Raphael Rooms—in a few hours. Plus, you’ll save time by getting skip-the-line admission to the main entrance and St. Peter’s Basilica.
What to Expect
Make your way to the Maya Tours office on via Germanico, where you meet your guide. From here, take a 5-minute walk to the entrance of the Vatican Museums.

With this tour, you gain priority admission to the Vatican Museums and have the option of exploring with an art historian guide.

Visit can’t miss highlights like the Sistine Chapel and St. Peters Basilica while making about eight other stops at locations including the Gallery of the Muses, Raphael Rooms, and Gallery of the Maps. It’s a great way to orient yourself and see some of the Vatican’s top highlights in a matter of a few hours.

After making your way through the galleries, make your last stop at St. Peter’s Basilica. Take advantage of direct entry into the basilica, explore on your own, and finish the tour here.
