Vatican Private Tours
Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica private Tour with guide.
We organize “skip the line” tickets to enter the Museum. The complete tour takes 3 hours (but it can be shortened if you wish), and leaves from our offices near the Museum entrance, we advise a 1.30 – 2.00pm start.
Your authorized English speaking Vatican tour guide (also other languages available) will explain everything as you pass through the following itinerary: Pigna Courtyard, Lapidaria Gallery, Belvedere Courtyard, Octagonal Courtyard, Pius-Clementine Museum, Candelabra Gallery, Gallery of Tapestries, Gallery of Maps, Raphael’s Rooms and finally to the Sistine Chapel. To get from the entrance of the Museum to the Sistine Chapel it will take between 45 minutes to 1.5 hours, depending on your interest and how the crowds will be moving inside the Museums the day of your visit. From the Sistine Chapel our guide will take you directly into St. Peter’s Basilica (avoiding a long walk and queues into St. Peters). The tour of St. Peter’s Basilica, still depending on your interest, will require between 30 minutes and one hour. In St. Peter’s you’ll see the famous Pietà by Michelangelo, the funeral monuments of the Popes who are buried in the Basilica, made by the most famous artists, the mosaics, the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament, Bernini’s Canopy, St. Peter’s Statue, Peter’s Throne and many other fantastic works of art. Should you wish a transfer (to or from the place of your choice) it is available at an additional cost.
