This is the perfect tour for anyone willing to have a full overview of the Vatican, without missing its highlights.

Meet your our staff at our office located just a few steps away from the Vatican. During the tour, your passionate guide will answer all your questions and will tell anecdotes about the building of the magnificent St. Peter’s Square and its stunning colonnade that give shape to St. Peter’s Square. In the Basilica, take in the beauty of some of the most relevant artworks of all time. You will have time to admire Michelangelo’s Pietà sculpture and the beautiful Baldachin. 

Thanks to the help of your knowledgeable guide, you will be provided skip-the-line tickets to maximize your tour time. Do not miss the chance to benefit from priority entrance at the Vatican Museums, one of the largest art galleries in the world.

Later, you will reach Sistine Chapel. Here you will see Michelangelo’s skills at his best and his timeless masterpieces. Sistine Chapel’s walls and ceiling are all covered with stunning images: one of them is definitely Michelangelo’s Last Judgement

Nowadays, the Sistine Chapel is still used to choose new Popes. Sistine Chapel is connected to St. Peter’s Square thanks to a chimney from which a white smoke will come out when there is a new election: in this way people outside will be informed of it.
