What to expect

This tour allows visitors to discover the Vatican Gardens in a small group conducted by an official guide. Take a walk through 2,000 years of history - natural and manmade wonders await you!

The Vatican Gardens have been a place of rest and meditation for the popes ever since 1279 when Nicholas III (Giovanni Gaetano Orsini, 1277-1280) moved his residence back to the Vatican from the Lateran Palace. Within the new walls, which he had built to protect his residence, he planted an orchard, a lawn, and a garden.

Besides the natural beauty of the gardens, Vatican City is rich in monuments and precious works of art. After the guided tour of the Vatican Gardens, you can access the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel with your skip-the-line tickets and spend as much time as you want inside.
