    What to Expect
    Visit: Eyes of Rome, Via Germanico 101, 00192 Rome Italy

    Meet your tour representative across the street from the museum entrance. Pass through metal detectors at the security check point and get escorted inside Vatican City where you'll receive your entrance tickets.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Visit: Vatican Museums, Viale Vaticano, 00120 Vatican City Italy

    The Vatican Museums are a definite must-see for all tourists who come to Rome, therefore the lines can be long. Skip the line and gain direct access to one of the world's most important museums, containing a vast collection - including many masterpieces dating from antiquity to the present day.
    After the security check, you'll be escorted to the ticket barrier. From that point on, you'll be left to explore the second-largest museum in the world at your own pace. Should you decide to purchase an official audio guide for your tour, you can do that before passing through the gate. The audio guides are available in 10 languages (Italian, English, French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, and Portuguese).

    Duration: 2 minutes

    Visit: Sistine Chapel, Citta del Vaticano 1, 00120 Vatican City Italy

    Since you do not have a tour guide, you can design your visit according to your own wishes and interests. Choose between Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Contemporary art, or even go for them all - you can stay inside the museum as long as you like. Do not miss the marvelous Raphael Rooms and, of course, Michelangelo's never-surpassed frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. Admire a vast collection of ancient sculptures, breathtaking tapestries, and Renaissance paintings.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Visit: Cortile della Pigna, Vatican City Italy

    Enjoy a coffee break (at your own expense) in the Belvedere Courtyard.

    Duration: 10 minutes
