COVID-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Save precious time and avoid the boring history tours of the Vatican City on a small group, skip-the-line tour with an English-speaking guide. Head straight to the most important areas of the Vatican Museums to marvel at the masterpieces of the papal collections.

Discover statues from ancient Greece and look inside the Pinecone Courtyard and Belvedere Courtyard, along with the Hall of the Muses, Round Room, and Gallery of the Candelabra. Admire Flemish tapestries from some of Raphael's pupils in the Gallery of Tapestries, and historical maps by fine cartographers in the Gallery of the Maps.

Contemplate Michelangelo's miraculous Sistine Chapel in silence. Then, skip the long lines to St. Peter's Basilica and enjoy a fully guided tour inside. Feel free to stay and explore other areas of the Vatican City on your own once you've said goodbye to your guide.
