Meet your guide near the entrance to the Vatican Museums to begin your 3-hour visit to three of the top attractions in Rome - the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica. Skip-the-line entry, getting in half an hour before the doors open to the public, allows you to visit these three sights in one morning.
Begin your tour at 8.30am, before doors open to the general public. Your guide will passionately lead you through the fascinating galleries of the Vatican Museums, providing you with historical facts and leaving you plenty of time to take photos and to absorb the breathtaking beauty of the masterpieces, like those at the Raphael rooms.
Then you will enter the amazing Sistine Chapel, where you will have the chance to admire the magnificent Michelangelo’s frescoes in their full beauty. After having looked up to some of the legendary frescoes such as 'The creation of Adam' and 'The Last Judgement,' you will visit the extraordinary St. Peter's Basilica (the largest ancient basilica in the world) where you will remain speechless in front of the touching Pietà of Michelangelo and will become mesmerized by the swirling bronze sculptures of the master Bernini.
For a better experience you can choose a small-group tour limited to 10 participants, to 13 participant, or a larger group with a maximum of 24 participants.
Please note that on Wednesdays the guided tour of the Basilica is not included due to the Pope's Audience.
