Meet your tour guide and group at the specified location you received at checkout, and then skip the horrendously long lines at the Vatican Museums to purchase your entrance tickets. Entrance fees (own expense) are €23 for adults and €15 for anyone under 19 years of age.
Your tour begins at 1:30pm. Follow your guide through Pinecone Courtyard as they point out the bronze pinecone statue the courtyard was named after. Stroll through Belvedere Courtyard and catch a glimpse of the ancient statue, Laocoön and His Sons.
Next, take time to admire the Gallery of the Candelabra, stand by the statues at the Pio Clementino Museum, and head over to the Sistine Chapel to see Michelangelo’s famous ceiling frescoes.
Make your last stop at St. Peter’s Basilica. Your guided tour ends here, and it’s up to you where to go afterward.
