Full description

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. Feel free to stay and explore other areas of Vatican City on your own once you've said goodbye to your guide.

Me and my two friends got there a couple minutes late but were still accommodated! The tour guide waited for us and she was amazing! She had so much knowledge of the history of the Vatican and all the art inside the museums! The scenery was also amazing. Highly recommend!

The tour was good and we learned allot. The company is realy good and trustworthy, I recomend you to go with them. I think taking a tour is a must if you want to understand something in the vatican. Still, the place was realy crowded and the guide was too fast for our opinion. Running from a must see painting to another is not my favourite way of knowing a place. I would reccommend seeing less stuff and instead asking more questions and talking more about less.

The experience was fantastic, it was straight forward to meet and once we met the guides the tours were informative and very helpful! They all went above and beyond to help you with any questions alongside making sure that you are safe. It was easier rather than turning up as the queues were excessive and this way it was straight forward and we were led through the whole experience. I would highly recommend for anyone visiting Rome.
