Full description
This Vatican tour lets you skip the regular ticket line as well as the priority line, letting you start your experience immediately, with headsets ready to go when you arrive.

The itinerary covers the Pio Clementino Museum, filled with statues from ancient Greece and Rome. Then visit the imposing Gallery of the Candelabra, and the Gallery of Tapestries that features a collection of exquisite tapestries from 16th and 17th centuries. See the Gallery of Maps, featuring 40 painted panels of maps of Italy by Dante. You’ll also visit the Raphael Rooms and the iconic Sistine Chapel.

On completion of the guided tour, the guide will take you to a private corridor that serves as a shortcut to the St. Peter’s Basilica. Once in, you can explore the church at your own pace. Be sure to stop by Bernini’s incredible Baldachin and Michelangelo’s Pietà.
