Tour Description

When in Rome, the Vatican Museums are a must. Located in the smallest country in the world, the Vatican Museums are home to one of the most extraordinary art collections every. With its 70,000 works of art displayed across 54 galleries, the Vatican collection will leave you breathless.

Join us on a remarkable journey through art and history, and discover one of the hidden gems of the Vatican walls.

Your tour will start in front of the gates of the museums where your private guide will whisk you through the line thanks to our Skip the Line tickets. Once inside, you will explore the most important galleries within the Vatican Museums, such as the Gallery of Tapestries, where you will have the chance to see one-in-a kind needlework. You’ll also pass by the Gallery of Maps, where your guide will tell you all about how our understanding of the world changed over the centuries.

Our Vatican Highlights tour will take you also through different outside areas, such as the Pinecone courtyard and the Belvedere Courtyard, where you’ll see the amazing Apollo of Belvedere, and the heartbreaking sculpture of Laocoon.

The highlight of this tour is without a doubt the Sistine Chapel. Famous for housing the Conclave, the Sistine Chapel is even more famous for the stunning frescoes that decorate the walls and the ceiling of the chapel, telling the stories of the Old Testament. Take a moment and gaze with awe at Michelangelo’s Last Judgment.
