Please Note

  • Gratuities to guides providing excellent service are appreciated.

  • This service ends at St. Peter's Basilica.

  • Extra measures may be implemented at some venues due to heightened global security. As a result, we may experience delays in getting through mandatory security checks when entering these venues. Extra measures may also restrict the size of bags that can be brought inside. To avoid disruptions or possible denied entry, we strongly suggest that you avoid bringing large purses, bags, or backpacks on your tour. The Vatican only permits very small bags, and specifically prohibits large bags, tripods, umbrellas, and backpacks. Any such items must be checked into the free luggage storage area which may result in your having to leave the tour early to retrieve them at the entrance.

  • Please note that children under the age of 6 years are not permitted on this tour.

  • It is the responsibility of all visitors to be at the meeting point 15 minutes before departure. Guests arriving after departure cannot be accommodated, & missed tours or tickets cannot be refunded.

  • Please note that on some religious festivities, the bus tour itinerary might change, and the gardens might no be accessible by bus.

  • Entrance into religious sites requires a strict dress code. Knees and shoulders MUST be covered for both men and women.

  • This tour involves a fair amount of walking and stairs; comfortable shoes are recommended.

  • On Wednesday mornings and afternoons St. Peter's Basilica may be closed to the public due to the Papal Audience taking place in Saint Peter's Square. Customers who wish to visit St. Peter's Basilica are advised to travel on another day. The Basilica is also subject to last minute closures for religious ceremonies. When this occurs, we are happy to offer customers a longer tour of the Vatican Museums in keeping with the advertised total length of the tour. While we undertake to tell tour groups ahead of time if there are any planned disruptions to Basilica opening hours, this is not always possible and in these cases we are unable to provide refunds or discounts.

  • We regret that we are unable to accommodate guests with wheelchairs or any impairments requiring special assistance. We are also unable to accommodate strollers or baby carriages on our group tours.

  • Non-flash photography is permitted throughout the tour, except in the Sistine Chapel where talking and photography are prohibited.

  • The Vatican Museums are among the most highly trafficked sites in the world. With over 6 million visitors in 2015 and numbers rising year-on-year, the museums give rise to a whole new meaning of the word "crowded." Our tour routes are designed to minimize exposure to crowds as much as possible, but be aware that the museums are very busy by nature.

Dress Code

  • Shoulders and knees must be covered.

  • Low cut, sleeveless tops or shorts are not permitted for both men and women.

  • Clients that do not adhere to the dress code will not be permitted entry to the Vatican.
