The Vatican Museum, home to Raphael’s Rooms and the world-famous Sistine Chapel, is one of Italy’s most popular attractions. On this intimate guided tour, you’ll get skip-the-line access to incredible galleries, ancient sculptures, and Renaissance masterworks— topped off with an exclusive visit to St. Peter’s Basilica, where you’ll beat the crowds with your own private entranceway. All entrance fees included for a seamless experience. 

What to Expect
Meet your guide directly across from the Vatican Museums, where your small group will breeze past crowds with skip-the-line admission tickets and enter directly into the galleries.

The tour is limited to six people, so you’ll have no trouble maneuvering the stunning collections. Move at your own pace through the Raphael Rooms, ornate papal apartments lined with Renaissance frescos, and the Gallery of Maps, where you’ll find 16th-century plans of Italy.

Feel free to ask as many questions as you’d like before entering into the Sistine Chapel, where the group will have time to observe Michelangelo’s world-famous ceiling masterpiece on their own.

Most tours end there, but you’ll continue on to St. Peter’s Basilica, where you’ll access your own VIP entranceway. Finish the tour in Italy’s largest and most lavishly built church, home to phenomenal Renaissance artworks like Michelangelo’s Pietà, carved from a single block of Carrara marble.

The BEST Way to see Vatican, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica

When we approached the meetup place we quickly surmised why reservations for this event are critical. MILES of people in July under the scorching hot Italian sun. While heartwarming to see the mass global draw at this amazing site, its worth the extra dollars to...More

If you mean going up into the fine then it doesn’t - you join the queue at the end of the tour fir that. Unless there is a separate skip the line
