Full description

Start the tour at Civitavecchia Harbor where you will be picked up. Embark on a small group tour in and arrive at the Vatican Museums and meet your tour guide. Take advantage of your exclusive skip-the-line access tickets, entering the museums through a panoramic terrace where you can admire the stunning view of Saint Peter's dome overlooking the Vatican gardens. 

Begin your tour of the collections which include a seemingly infinite number of masterpieces by Bernini, Raphael, Botticelli, Perugino, and other treasures - all incredibly united under one roof. Learn about how the numerous popes that have lived in the Vatican continuously enriched it with different artworks. 

Admire the most beautiful Roman ancient statues and gaze in awe at the length of the enormous Tapestry Hall, before continuing on through the Hall of the Painted Maps. Finally, witness the unmissable ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and marvel at the sublime 'Last Judgment' by Michelangelo.

The visit to Saint Pierre was removed from the program without warning. Remember to contact the partner organization the day before because it will not call you of its own free will.
