    This is a typical itinerary for this product

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

    Enjoy our specially designed route showing you all the famous works along with our favorite lesser-known sights. Stops include the Raphael Rooms, the Belvedere Courtyard with Apollo Belvedere & Laocoön & His Sons, the Pinecone Courtyard, the Gallery of the Candelabra, the Gallery of the Maps, and the Gallery of the Tapestries.

    Duration: 1 hour 5 minutes

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

    Step inside the Sistine Chapel to marvel at Michelangelo’s frescoes. Your guide can’t speak inside, but before they take you in they’ll tell you what to look for and give you the surprisingly acrimonious story behind the famous room. Soak up the little details like Michelangelo’s self-portrait and hidden insults in the Last Judgement.

    Duration: 1 hour 5 minutes

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

    Use the guides-only door between the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica to skip the long entrance lines and enjoy a full tour of one of the most famous churches on earth. Follow your guide through the istorically-important parts of the sanctuary and take in famous works of art like Michelangelo’s Pieta and Bernini’s Baldachin. Don’t forget to rub the feet of St. Peter’s statue for good luck. As you go, your guide will tell you the epic story of the Basilica’s construction and point out details that you would otherwise miss.

    Duration: 1 hour 5 minutes

    August 13,2019, 1:30 pm- My family walked the Vatican tour. Sabrina was our exceptional guide. She was highly knowledgeable, efficient, worked well under pressure of enormously, suffocating August crowds and kept us engaged the whole tour. Request Sabrina!
