Description

Enjoy a tour of the Vatican Museums together with a knowledgeable English-speaking tour guide who will teach you everything you need to know from the lives of the Ancient Romans to the stories behind the artists of the world-renowned artworks you may find during the tour. See the artworks that people have flown miles just to see. Roam around endless corridors that seem endlessly decorated with artwork, sculptures and frescoes.

Then, visit the Gallery of Maps to see how much our understanding of the world has evolved. Explore around the Gallery of the Tapestries and admire the highly-detailed handmade masterpieces that it houses.

Next, marvel at the beautiful frescoes of the popular Renaissance artist, Raphael at the Raphael Rooms. See some of his prized works including the "School of Athens".

Come to the Sistine Chapel where your jaw may drop at the sight of Michelangelo's incredible frescoes found at the chapel's ceiling and walls. See Michelangelo's self-portrait as well as the portraits of his enemies that he had incorporated alongside his frescoes.

For the complete experience, you can start off the tour with a delectable buffet dinner at the Pinecone Courtyard (if the option is selected) where you can feast on a wide array of local food selections and drinks.

Please Note

  • 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.

  • 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.
