Dive into the Vatican’s must-see attractions with the highlights you absolutely can't leave Rome without. This tour has been specifically designed to get you inside as quickly as possible with skip-the-line entry. You'll have a passionate Vatican expert with you all the way for a true insider's perspective, and in groups of only 12 guests or fewer both you and the priceless works of art will get the attention you deserve.
This is hands down the perfect tour for families traveling with small children or teens, people who "don't do" museum tours, or those who have limited time and want to see the Eternal City in less than an eternity.What to expect:
Your tour begins in central Rome, where you greet your guide and—with skip-the-line ticket in hand—sail past the long lines that often form outside of the Vatican. Once inside, make a beeline for top Vatican attractions, such as the Gallery of Maps, Raphael's Rooms, and the indisputable main attraction: the Sistine Chapel, where Michelangelo’s frescoes adorn the ceiling.
After discovering little-known information about the history of the landmark, continue to St. Peter’s Basilica to admire standout features, such as the gold-painted ceiling and altarpiece. Your tour concludes here, but you’re free to continue exploring independently, if you wish.
