Full description
Start the tour at Civitavecchia Harbor where you will be picked up. Embark on a small group tour in an intimate group of a maximum of 10 people. Arrive at the Vatican Museums and meet your tour guide. Take advantage of your exclusive skip-the-line access tickets, entering the museums through a panoramic terrace where you can admire the stunning view of Saint Peter's dome overlooking the Vatican gardens. 

Begin your tour of the collections which include a seemingly infinite number of masterpieces by Bernini, Raphael, Botticelli, Perugino, and other treasures - all incredibly united under one roof. Learn about how the numerous popes that have lived in the Vatican continuously enriched it with different artworks. Admire the most beautiful Roman ancient statues and gaze in awe at the length of the enormous Tapestry Hall, before continuing on through the Hall of the Painted Maps. Finally, witness the unmissable ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and marvel at the sublime 'Last Judgment' by Michelangelo.

To end the tour, pass through a special door to reach the largest Catholic church in the world: Saint Peter's Basilica. Once you enter, the greatness of the structure and attention to architectural details will overwhelm you. Gaze in awe at Michaelangelo's sculpture 'Pieta' and discover the tombs of the popes including St. John Paul II's and St. Peter the Apostle. At the end you have time to explore Piazza San Pietro before returning to Civitavecchia
