your experience

Your professional guide will lead you through the Vatican Museums through our reserved Official Partners entrance, saving time on any long and winding queues. There, you can marvel at the vast collections of Renaissance art spread out over many galleries. While you traverse the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of Maps, and the awe-inspiring Raphael's Rooms, you can listen to your guide's commentary on your headsets and understand more about the rich tradition of culture and history embodied in the Vatican.

Next, you will make a stop at the Sistine Chapel, Michelangelo's magnum opus, where you can spend time appreciating the finer details of Michelangelo's marvelous murals. Learn all about the Vatican city’s role in shaping world history and Christianity as it is perceived today, on this tour of its most famous landmarks. Guides and guests will be required to wear masks as well as adhering to social distancing where possible. This means you can visit the Vatican safely and with very few people around - which will be an amazing - almost unbelievable - way to experience this incredible place.
