Full description
Explore the wonders of the Vatican Museums on an exclusive, personalized small group tour. Waste no time in the ticket lines with fast-track access tickets, and spend 3 hours with a qualified guide who can adapt the tour to suit your interests.

Discover an extraordinary collection of statues in the Chiaramonti and the Pio-Clementino Museums. Observe the peculiar “stone zoo” in the Hall of Animals, the moving statue of Laocoön, and the greatest collection of Roman portrait busts.

Then, admire the beauty of the lavish Borgia Apartment and the stunning Raphael Rooms, 4 suites frescoed by the inimitable artist. Hear the stories of works by Da Vinci, Caravaggio, and Giotto from your guide in the Pinacoteca Gallery, tailored to your preferences by your guide. Find works by Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso, and Vincent van Gogh in the Collection of Modern Religious Art.

To end your tour, enter the unparalleled Sistine Chapel, where you can marvel at Michelangelo’s stunning frescoes, and then St Peter’s Basilica, where your guide will fascinate you with the history of this gorgeous church, said to be the burial site of St. Peter the Apostle in the Catholic tradition.
