Vatican Museums - Sistine Chapel - St. Peter's Basilica

Enter the Vatican Museums before the general public and experience this incredible collection at a slower pace on our small group Vatican tour.

In just three hours we’ll cover all the highlights of the nine-mile Vatican Museums, visiting the Sistine Chapel and the Raphael Rooms as well as less-known sites such as the Hall of Maps and the Gallery of Tapestries.

We’ll also have time to visit St. Peter's Basilica. Special Skip the Line Access means we enter directly from the Sistine Chapel, saving a 30-minute walk and hours of waiting in line.

With group sizes of 12 people or less on our small group Vatican tours, your group will be intimate and your expert guide easy to interact with.

At nine miles long, it's impossible to see all of the Vatican Museums in just one visit. Let us take the hassle out of your time at the Vatican with No Wait Access, small group sizes, a carefully planned route and an expert, English-speaking guide to ensure that you get the best from your time.

Special Notes
  • This tour involves a fair amount of walking so comfortable shoes are recommended.
  • We are unable to accommodate customers with wheelchairs or walking disabilities on our group tour. We recommend they book a private tour.
  • Entrance into the Vatican requires a strict dress code. Shoulders and knees must be covered, no low cut or sleeveless tops or shorts for both men and women. Clients that do not adhere to the dress code will not be permitted entry to the Vatican. We cannot be held responsible for entry denied due to improper dress.
  • On Wednesdays, access to St. Peter's Basilica & Square may be closed at the time of the morning tour due to the Papal Audience.
  • Photography is permitted throughout the tour without a flash; photography is prohibited in the Sistine Chapel, however.
  • Clients must arrive at the designated meeting point 15 minutes prior to the scheduled tour time and present their tour voucher to the tour coordinator/guide.
  • We are also unable to accommodate strollers or baby carriages on our group tours.
  • Extra measures may be implemented at some venues due to heightened global security. As a result, we may experience delays in getting through mandatory security checks when entering these venues. Extra measures may also restrict the size of bags that can be brought inside. To avoid disruptions or possible denied entry, we strongly suggest that you avoid bringing large purses, bags, or backpacks on your tour. The Vatican only permits very small bags, and specifically prohibits large bags, tripods, umbrellas, and backpacks. Any such items must be checked into the free luggage storage area which may result in your having to leave the tour early to retrieve them at the entrance.
