    Vatican Museums
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Take a stirring three-hour journey through art and religious history with skip-the-line entry to the unmissable Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. The tour starts at Piazza della Città Leonina, where your well-informed guide will provide an overview of the remarkable history, architecture, and politics of the Vatican City. You will explore some of the less-discovered spots that are often missed by other tourists, before taking in the famous painting, sculptures, and artworks collected by popes over the centuries. You will then be taken through a priority line into the exquisite Sistine Chapel, the crown jewel of the Vatican, featuring the breathtaking work of Michelangelo’s 'The Last Judgement', one of the most famous artworks in the world. The tour will continue on to St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest basilica in the world. Here, you will admire the stunning masterpiece 'The Pieta' alongside the church’s ornate altar and impressive dome structure.
