This 3.5-hour Vatican Tour is led by an expert guide who will share stories you won't hear anywhere else! Visit the highlights of the Vatican Museums in closed groups limited to 10 people or less. The reduced group size means you have permission to walk around the the Vatican headset free. Skip-the-Line no-wait access is included and is the fastest possible way to enter the Museums. The afternoon start time means you'll reach the Sistine Chapel at the very end of the day when the crowds dissipate. You may even be among the last to leave!

This 3.5-hour walking experience begins outside the entrance of the Vatican Museums at 2:30pm. You will check in with your guide and small group. The tour includes No Wait, Skip-the-Line Access. There is simply no faster way to enter the Vatican Museums.

After entering via No Wait access -- logistics will be kept to minimum, and before you know it you will embark on an exploration of the highlights and tales of the Vatican Museums.

The tour's smaller group size means there is no need for headsets inside the Vatican Museums - freeing you of the uncomfortable and staticky earphones typical of larger Vatican tours. You'll have genuine, face-to-face interaction with your English-speaking guide. What's more, your tour guide is a Vatican Insider with a special connection to the Museums - meaning you will enjoy stories you are unlikely to hear otherwise. 

A typical itinerary includes the Pavilion of the Carriages, home to everything from centuries old horse-drawn carriages to vintage and modern cars really used by Popes past and present. You'll visit the Pinecone Courtyard, the Hall of the Maps (the "Oval Office" of the Pope centuries ago), the Gallery of the Tapestries, the Pinacoteca, Belvedere Courtyard, Room of the Muses, the Round Room and Candelabra Gallery.

The last stop inside the Vatican Museums is the Sistine Chapel. Your guide will prepare you in advance for this experience as no one is allowed to speak once inside the chapel. With the help of your insider Vatican guide, you will be able to grasp the scale and majesty of Michelangelo's most important work. The afternoon timing of this tour means you will visit the Sistine Chapel at the very end of the day when the crowds have moved on. If you are lucky, you may even be among the last out.

From the Sistine Chapel, you'll take advantage of direct access to St. Peter's Basilica. No need to wait on the long security line here. After a brief introduction to the Basilica from the steps overlooking St. Peter's Square, you'll be free to explore the Basilica on your own for as long as you like before closing time.
