Description

If you want immediate access to the Vatican Museums, this tour is for you. With this exclusive access, you can enter the Vatican Museums with your expert guide and admire the world's most extensive private collections of art without the standard line waiting. This no-wait access option allows you to skip the priority lines and helps avoid 2 to 3 hours of waiting.

Before the tour begins, your guide will provide you with a personal headset so you don't miss a thing during the tour. These tours will never exceed more than 20 people so you will have a more intimate, small group tour. Your articulate, English-speaking Vatican Tour guide can personally cater to your needs and make your visit to Vatican City unforgettable.

Stroll the Vatican Museums, which houses over 2000 rooms and 9 miles of the most extensive collection of art in the world. Walk in the Pinecone Courtyard, the Hall of Maps, the Gallery of Tapestries, and the Gallery of Candelabra. Wander through Raphael's Rooms, marveling at the interconnecting galleries that showcase the artistic genius of Raphael, and then enter Michelangelo's famous Creation of Adam with your own eyes as you explore the Sistine Chapel. Admire the labyrinth of the Vatican City, the smallest country in the world.

After taking in the Vatican Museums, be humbled by the imposing beauty of Saint Peter's Basilica, where you will encounter another of Michelangelo's masterpieces, La Pietà. For a fascinating finish, stop to admire the magnificent Saint Peter's Square and spot the balcony from which the Pope delivers his public addresses.
