What to expect

As the spiritual home to over 1.6 billion Catholics worldwide, the Vatican City can be something of a nightmare get into, with queues lasting for hours on end. But this Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica tour utilizes premium skip-the-line tickets allowing you to breeze past the crowds and dig right in.

You'll begin at the Vatican Museum, which, as the primary archive of the world’s largest religion, is a bit like a city within a city. It has over 1000 rooms covering four millennia, meaning those without visiting unaided often find it a tad confusing. Your expert guide has crafted a custom route through the museum that packs in all the best bits without leaving you lost for hours in its labyrinthine corridors.

You’ll then head to perhaps the most famous part of the Holy City, the Sistine Chapel. It’s from this fabled building that the mysterious white smoke rises upon the selection of a new pope, and this is also the home of Michelangelo’s masterpiece ‘The Last Judgement’. Walking through here is a truly magical experience.
