Early start for breakfast at Vatican outdoor restaurant. Skipped lines for entry to Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St Peters. Very friendly and knowledgeable guide Mikailah from City Wonders. Well worth the cost.

We were very impressed with this tour. Our tour guide, Elisabetta Bonafede, was quite knowledgeable and passionate about the Vatican and its contents. She took her time and was very thorough in giving us as much information as she could.

This tour is not cheap, but we thought that it was worth the cost. You get into the Vatican at 7:30AM, beating the crowds. The large tour groups and the general public are admitted at 9AM. At that point it is almost impossible to walk...More

Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent
souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and
pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which
acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the
souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only
business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the
tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as

We did the same. Viator. Our tour was about 4 hours with early entry as well. We had a great tour guide. Our group size was about 14. Worth every cent. Very professional.
