Full description
Meet your guide to gain fast-track entrance to the Vatican Museums and experience one of the most important and interesting art collections in Europe. Whether your tour starts at 1 PM or 3 PM, you’ll use a reserved entrance to avoid the long lines and get stuck into exploring these historic treasure troves.

Once inside, wander the vast corridors and listen to historical details about the artifacts on display. You’ll be provided with headsets to hear your expert guide narrate the surroundings clearly as you’re led past highlights like the Pine Courtyard, Pio Clementino Museum, the Gallery of the Candelabra, and the Gallery of the Geographical Maps.

Next, enter the Sistine Chapel, where Michelangelo’s most signifiant works of art can be seen. Receive privileged access to St. Peter’s Basilica, where more stunning works such as Michelangelo's "Pietà" and an altar with Bernini's Baldacchino can be found. Experience the beauty of the dome of St. Peter's Basilica from the inside.
