    What to Expect
    Meet your guide and small group in Piazza del Risorgimento, then proceed directly into the Vatican museums with skip-the-line access. The tour group is limited to 15 people to ensure personalized attention from your guide, the chance to ask questions, and an intimate experience. 
    See Apollo Belvedere and Laocoön and Sons in the Belvedere Courtyard and stroll through the Raphael Rooms. Explore the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of the Maps, the Gallery of the Candelabra, and the Pinecone Courtyard. 
    Pause outside the Sistine Chapel so your guide can explain the history behind the iconic ceiling frescoes, then proceed inside to view one of the world's most famous artworks for about 20 minutes. 
    Upon exiting the Sistine Chapel, choose to double back through the Vatican Museums to see more of the collection; or your guide through a special door directly into St. Peter’s Basilica for an independent visit.

    Our guide was excellent. He exhibited knowledge, passion and enthusiasm for the tour. To see the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in person is definitely something to experience.

    What an amazing tour! Gastone was a fantastic guide, keeping even our teenagers engaged! We loved how his stories brought the Vatican to life. We would never have enjoyed our visit to the same degree without this tour. Even though it was very busy, Gastone...More

    They cannot pick up the tickets till they are actually on site. It took only a few minutes, and most used the wait as a chance to take a bathroom break.
