Experience the icons Rome is synonymous with - the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica, with this Guided Tour that comes with flexible options. Not to mention, you will be traversing these historic places with the official tour partners of the Vatican - which means only the best awaits you!
You can choose from the following tours:
The Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica is the Holy Trinity of attractions and is possibly on every person’s bucket list. This guided tour treats you to an exclusive Skip-The-Line access, along with professional guides who will regale you with the tales of Renaissance, history of Rome and of course, all those fascinating tidbits about everything you see. The tours are available in English and Spanish, and once you arrive, you will be given a pair of headphones to plug into your preferred language and a portable radio receiver to help you explore on your own without getting lost.
The awe-inspiring Vatican Museum is up first - home to some of the greatest artistic masterpieces ever, including the incredible Sistine Chapel. Accompany your guide in trailing the lavish Gallery of Maps, the exquisite Gallery of Tapestries - designed by the genius artist Raffaello Sanzio and realized by Belgian makers, the Raphael Rooms, Borgia Apartments and other parts of the Museum not covered in most tours.
The magnificent Sistine Chapel is where you will go next to admire the breathtaking frescoes, especially Michaelangelo’s The Last Judgement. Feast your eyes on the stunning ceiling before moving on to the opulent St. Peter’s Basilica, housing the largest dome in the world. Explore the Piazza, a vision in Baroque style architecture and designed by the legend Bernini, before moving to discover the equally surreal interiors where you can see Michaelangelo’s Pietà. Believed to be the greatest church of Christendom, this where St. Peter, one of Jesus’ twelve apostles, is considered to be buried here.

Skip-the-Line for sure is great ! Our professional guide was good too. However, maybe because there was a lot of people there, we thought the tour went a little bit too fast...Eddie Li, Canada
We had a very knowledgeable tour guide on our visit to St Marks and Doges Palace, she was enthusiastic and really knew her subject. Our visist to theglass factory on Murano...Ms Elspeth Dixon, United Kingdom
We were four and although there was a little confusion in the beginning - we had thought we had a private guide - we recovered and found our guide Tarik to be fantastic. He...Jennifer Zelmer, Canada
