Faster Than Skip-the-Line: Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica Tour

24,711 reviews
Home to some of the world’s most iconic paintings, the Vatican Museums attract huge crowds. Save yourself hours of waiting by booking this skip-the-line tour of the Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s Rooms, and St. Peter’s Basilica (when the option is selected) in Rome. Early morning and evening tour options mean you can explore the complex during far less crowded time slots. Upgrade to a small-group tour limited to 10 people for a more personalized experience.

This was a fascinating tour!!! Our lovelky tour guide (that I cannot recall his name unfortunately), had such a huge knowledge of the Necropolis of Vatican. He was happy that I was Greek (as many of his words he used were Greek and he kind of included me in the tour)... Interraction is always a good thing. We were a group of 6 due to COVID-19, but I believe we all enjoyed that tour. Attention on the detail and huge knowledge kept us hanging on his every word! Really enjoyed it and all the preautions for the pandemic was in place accordingly. Fantastic!

I was so amazed and disappointed that the Scavi office refused to refund our tickets or even give a credit for a future visit! Our tickets were for March 15th, 2020. The entire country of Italy is on lockdown because of Coronavirus, with all public places closed including restaurants etc. The USA has banned incoming flights from Italy. This is clearly an unusual situation, out of everyone's control, yet they refused a refund and even sent an extremely rude response, "Sorry but our offices are open and we don’t refund the entrance." Pretty much, tough luck.

My husband and I were so excited for this tour and it did not disappoint. We booked it about 2 months before our trip and it was quite simple. We showed up 15 minutes before our scheduled tour, went through security, and started right on time. Our tour guide spoke English well and was extremely knowledgeable. I’d say the tour lasted about an hour. Afterwards, we were able to walk up into Saint Peter’s Basilica. We were happy about this because the wait to get in had been about 2 hours all day. We personally did the tour for religious purposes but I would suggest it for anyone who is interested in history as well. This tour is definitely a hidden gem of Rome. Bring some water if you get warm easily because it was very humid underground.
