    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Vatican Museums, Viale Vaticano, 00120 Vatican City Italy

    In this exclusive tour at the Vatican museums, you will enjoy a complimentary pick-up service from your accommodation with one of our professional English-speaking drivers. You will be taken to the usually packed museum entrance where you will meet the tour guide, and with your "skip the line" entry tickets, you will skip the huge entry line and access directly the metal detector security check. 
    The tour will begin in a gorgeous panoramic terrace that offers a stunning view of St. Peter's dome overlooking the Vatican gardens; the perfect spot to take a great picture! The guide will then walk you through all the highlights of the museums which include masterpieces and artifacts from different cultures and civilizations. You will enter the Pio Clementine museum, you will gasp at the length of the enormous Tapestry Hall, then through the Hall of the Painted Maps, you will enter the Sistine Chapel whose impact in history, religion and visual arts has no equal in the world. All of this in a small and intimate group of maximum 10 people since we don't want our clients to feel uncomfortable in big groups. 

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Sistine Chapel, Citta del Vaticano 1, 00120 Vatican City Italy

    Spend at least 10-15 minutes admiring Michelangelo's masterpieces. The ceiling and "Last judgment" are surely the real attraction.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: St. Peter's Basilica, Piazza di San Pietro, 00120 Vatican City Italy

    After visiting the Sistine Chapel, through a special door available only if accompanied by your tour guide, you will reach the largest Catholic church in the world: Saint Peter's Basilica. This is where Michelangelo's sculpture "Pieta" is kept and the tombs of the popes including St. John Paul II's and St. Peter the Apostle.
    The tour ends in St. Peter's square, where you will 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 shop and eventually show you the nearest taxi station or subway.

    Duration: 1 hour
