Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience - Make sure your Vatican visit is a once-in-a-lifetime experience by booking your own, private guide. Traveling with an expert, English-speaking guide through the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica, you’ll have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the masterpieces held within the papal palaces. Ask all the questions you want and influence your tour route – with your own private guide the Vatican is your oyster.  Our No Wait Access Private Vatican Tours typically follow a carefully crafted route through the museums, visiting all the highlights of the collection such as the Raphael Rooms, the Gallery of Tapestries and the Laocoon Group sculpture that inspired Michelangelo.

Be amazed as you enter the Sistine Chapel and experience for yourself two of the world’s most famous masterpieces – The Last Judgement and The Creation of Adam. With an explanation from your guide, you’ll see things that other visitors never spot – like Michelangelo’s bone-free self-portrait, his message to the world that he would rather be skinned alive than paint the Sistine Chapel again.

Our tour ends with a bang at St. Peter’s Basilica. We enter directly from the Sistine Chapel via a special entrance, skipping the long line outside. Your guide will provide you with a detailed description of the Basilica of the spectacular altar, Michelangelo's famous 'Pietà' and the side chapels that make this the world's largest historic church.
