Full description
Tour one of the holiest sites in Christendom on a 3-hour guided walking tour of the Vatican Museums. It includes a comprehensive visit to the Sistine Chapel, and the masterpieces of St. Peter’s Square. You will have skip-the-line access, avoiding the immense queues that often form outside one of the world’s most popular attractions.

The Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica are considered among the most important places to explore the history of human civilization. Start your tour at the Museums to see one of the world's most important art collections that the Popes of Rome have enriched over 5 centuries.

Look out for some of the most renowned sculptures and masterpieces of Renaissance art. You will feel the weight of great history, and get a sense of the sacred, as you see paintings by Raphael, Giotto, Leonardo, Caravaggio, and Michelangelo, including his masterwork in the Sistine Chapel.

Your art historian guide will then take you to St. Peter’s Square to admire Bernini’s colonnade. Continue to the Basilica, the most important place for Catholicism in the entire world. Built over the centuries by famous architects, including Michelangelo, its iconic dome is one of the symbols of Rome.

Inside what many consider to be the greatest church in the world, admire unique masterpieces from different artists and eras, such as Michelangelo’s famous "Pieta," as well as more astonishing works by Bernini and Canova.
