Home to the world’s largest private portfolio of artwork, the Vatican is a must-see for visitors to Rome, and the best way to explore it is with a guide.

  • Half-day Vatican Museums guided tour with fast-track access

  • Explore St. Peter’s Basilica and rub the statue of St. Peter for a blessing

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This experience offers upgrades for early morning or after-hours tours of the Vatican.
Meet your local guide at the tour office to enter the Vatican Museums. Then, with your skip-the-line ticket, step inside to start your Vatican and Sistine Chapel tour. Follow your guide, listening to tales of saintliness and scandal, and learn about the Vatican’s place as one of the holiest sites in Christendom.

Italian art flourished in the Renaissance and Baroque periods, and the Vatican popes put together one of the world’s largest collections of private art with frescos, paintings, sculptures, and treasure. See the highlights as you walk through galleries such as Raphael’s Rooms, and hear stories behind works such as the 'School of Athens'—a piece that features images of Michelangelo and Raphael himself.

Pass through halls such as the Gallery of the Masks and Gallery of the Maps. Then, make your way into the Sistine Chapel. A sacred spot and the private papal chapel, the Sistine Chapel is also renowned for its Michelangelo frescoes—'The Last Judgement' and 'The Creation of Adam.'

Continue to St. Peter’s Basilica, which is said to be built on the ground where St. Peter is buried. Admire 'La Pietà,' an early Michelangelo sculpture, and pause to rub the foot of a statue of St. Peter, said to bring good luck. Your Vatican and St. Peter’s Basilica tour then finishes outside the church.

No tour of St Peters or the Sistine chapel

The tour guide was v good/knowledgeable but there was no tour of St Peter's!!! Which was the main reason myself and my friend booked the tour. There were significant changes to the tour as advertised, and at no point were we informed. Only as the tour was about to commence I. E on the day, just as we were to set out for St Paul's (despite having arrived 30mins in advance) - so there was no time to consider this major change to the tour as advertised. Not only this but when we set off to go to St Peter's ourself we weren't informed of the closing time so not only did we not get a tour of St Peters as advertised I didn't get to visit the cathedral at all. It was my last day in Rome so I completely missed out due to the misleading nature of the tour as advertised. I paid over 100 for both 'tours', whereas I could have just paid 17 for entry to the main site. I have requested a refund and apology but have yet to hear back from viator. Dissapointed is an understatement.

Overall disappointing

The guide himself was friendly and provided decent information on what we saw, once we began. However, we began the tour 1 hour after expected due to administrative oversight of not having headphones ready. 1 of our family’s headphones did not work and my family spent time trying to figure this out, missing part of the information. Our reservation online said it included the basilica and we paid for the basilica but the tour guide ended the tour after showing us the Vatican museums and the Sistine Chapel with no explanation as to why we weren’t also seeing the basilica. This was disappointing and extra stressful with 3 small children.

This was a wonderful family experience that lived up to everything I hoped for. We almost didn’t make it because the bus was running late, but they waited in the heat for us. Grazie Mille!! The tour guide was very friendly and extremely courteous, especially with the younger children who were in the group, to relate the experience and stay informative.

Post-COVID Tour

Tour guide was thorough and well-versed in the relevant historical context. He was engaging, entertained questions, clear, and catered well to the younger members of our tour group (which was only 9 people -- an added bonus). Locating the meeting spot was easy, and it was close to the Vatican entry point. The only snag (which was COVID-19 related) had to do with the tour itself -- though specifically mentioned in the description, St. Peter's Basilica was not included because the passageway that connects it to the Sistine Chapel was closed. So we had to individually go around and enter the Basilica on our own (entry was free, and the line wasn't long). The Museum and Sistine Chapel were, of course, magnificent. Be aware that visitors are not allowed to take pictures inside the Sistine Chapel (you can snap away everywhere else), and discussion must be kept to a minimum -- yes, they'll yell at you and, if necessary, remove you for not observing the rules. If you plan to tour the Vatican during the second half of 2020, expect to wear a mask throughout the entire tour (approximately 3 hours).

Rushed

I have been on tours before and this was too rushed, rooms were missed, he talked and walked, so no time to take pictures. I brought a friend that had not ever been to Rome, so when the Raphael Rooms were not even addressed, I was very unhappy. It seemed we were behind from the beginning, but we literally only got 2.5 hours to run through the Vatican museums, the Sistine Chapel, and the Basilica. I was just so disappointed for my friend.
