Covid-19 Update

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

Your tour to the Vatican Museums will begin with pickup from your accommodation by an English-speaking driver. You will then be taken to the museum entrance, where you will meet your tour guide who will provide you with a skip-the-line ticket. The tour will begin on the panoramic terrace that offers a stunning view of St. Peter's Dome and the Vatican gardens. Your guide will then walk you through all the highlights of the museums, which include masterpieces and artifacts from different cultures and civilizations. Visit the Pio Clementine Museum, gasping at the length of the enormous Tapestry Hall, and then pass through the Hall of the Painted Maps. Next, enter the Sistine Chapel through a special door available only if accompanied by a licensed tour guide. Hear all about this famous chapel, whose impact on history, religion, and the visual arts has no equal in the world. The tour ends in St. Peter's Square, where you will be able to admire Bernini's colonnade and the stunning façade of the basilica. At last, for those interested in purchasing religious articles or official Vatican products, the tour guide will take you to the official Vatican gift store and eventually show you the nearest taxi station or subway.

The driver was right on time, maybe a little early and took us to a quaint little bistro where we had some Prosecco and my daughters enjoyed some handmade cheesecake. Our guide met us there and we walked to Vatican City and conducted our tour. Our guide was amazing. He was incredibly knowledgeable and great with my daughters keeping them engaged and captivated. What a beautiful place, and to have your own personal guide who can cater his presentation to fit your needs so perfectly is worth every penny. We were so pleased that we chose this tour for our time in Rome. There are several options for Vatican tours but there is no way you would regret this one!
