What to expect

Join a passionate guide who will take you on an insightful journey from the Vatican Museums to the Sistine Chapel, and finally down into St. Peter’s Basilica!

Throughout the tour, your guide will be open to all questions so you can fully appreciate and enjoy your experience. Inside the Museums, your guide will share their knowledge of the Vatican’s 4000-year-old history, telling you secrets and stories of days gone by, while taking you around the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of Maps and the Gallery of Candelabras. You’ll be in awe at the ancient sculptures and extravagant candelabras from the imperial villas. Finish off with a stroll in Bramante’s Pinecone Courtyard where you can take pictures by the bronze Pigna statue.

Your next stop will be the Sistine Chapel. Stare in delight at Michelangelo’s famous “The Creation of Adam”, see “The Last Judgement”, and take in the enchantment of the Pope’s private chapel. The last visit of your tour will be to the beautiful St. Peter’s Basilica. Venture inside and immerse yourself in the home of the Catholic Church. Admire "La Pietà", a stunning sculpture by a 24-years-old Michelangelo, and Bernini’s "Baldacchino", the ornate bronze canopy that sits above St. Peter’s high altar.
