Full description
Take a journey through Vatican City’s highlights on this 3-hour guided tour. Explore the Vatican museums, see the spectacular Sistine Chapel, and tour the interior of St. Peter's Basilica with skip-the-line tickets - spend your time exploring, not waiting.

This excursion into the Vatican’s legendary art and architecture starts at the Vatican Museums, which house the most important ancient art collection in the world. From the Egyptian Museum to the Etruscan Museum, and the Greek-Roman section to the Collections of Renaissance Art, there is something for everyone.

Your guide will lead you to the best galleries to see frescoes, statues, tapestries, and historical maps. There, you will also find the Borgia Apartment, La Pinacoteca Vaticana and the beautiful Vatican Library. Continue to the Sistine Chapel to admire masterpieces by Michelangelo, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Pinturicchio, and Perugino - gazing up at Michelangelo's ceiling is an experience you'll remember for the rest of your lives. Then, you’ll ascend Bernini’s Royal Staircase to St. Peter’s Basilica, rebuilt in the 16th and 17th centuries, a master work of architectural achievement.
