What does the visit include?

  • Vatican Museums: The Vatican Museums feature one of the world’s largest art collections, including Renaissance masterpieces and stunning classical sculptures. You’ll follow your guide through The Gallery of Maps, Raphael Rooms, Tapestry Gallery and other impressive rooms.    
  • Sistine Chapel: The Sistine Chapel is entirely decorated with breath-taking Renaissance frescos, including The Last Judgement by Michelangelo. Nowadays, the Chapel holds the Papal conclave.

Important information

  • The dress code is strictly enforced to enter St Peter’s Basilica. Women and men must cover their shoulders and knees.
  • Please note that the Holy See may close St Peter’s Basilica without prior notice. If this were to happen during your tour, you would spend more time in the Vatican Museums and in the Sistine Chapel. 
  • Every Wednesday (if you book the 8:30am tour), you will visit the Vatican Library instead of St Peter's Basilica. 
  • If you would also like to explore the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine, you can purchase our combo tour
  • With this guided tour you will skip the ticketing office line.
