Full description
Meet your expert Vatican guide by St. Peter's Square - a quick ascension by elevator later will carry you up to the top of the dome from where you can see all of Rome and far beyond Rome too. The views are absolutely spectacular.

Back on terra firma you will tour the entirety of St. Peter's Basilica - this in itself is rare as most other Rome tour operators do not include it in their Vatican tours.

Take a break before making the short walk to the comfortable customer center ahead of your second tour to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. Genuine skip-the-line access means that you will be fast tracked to the artistic and archaeological masterpieces which make the Vatican Museums absolutely must-sees when in Rome.

Yesterday we did the St Peter's Bassilica with the Dome climb(lots of steps). We then met up with our other guide(Luigi) to go through vatican/Sistine chapel. It really was a fantastic experience, truly fascinating... Luigi and Sandra were so knowledgeable and were very friendly and enthusiastic. I cannot recommend this tour group enough, mainly due to the experience provided by the two reps for when in rome tours.
