Full description
Save time with a skip-the-line tour of the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel and see masterpieces of art and antiquity.

Meet your Spanish-speaking guide to enter the Vatican Museums. Wander the vast corridors and galleries of one of the most important museums in the world, touring in a small group of no more than 30 people for a more intimate experience.

Go to the spectacular Cortile del Belvedere (Belvedere Courtyard), and see historic maps of ancient cartographers in the Gallery of Maps. Admire the beautiful tapestries by some of Raphael’s students in the Gallery of Tapestries.

Then, gaze in awe at Michelangelo’s miraculous frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. Enter the most important Catholic church in the world as you look inside St. Peter's Basilica, and see Michelangelo’s statue of “La Pieta.” End by Bernini’s colonnades on St. Peter’s Square.
