Description

VATICAN MUSEUMS & SISTINE CHAPEL
VIP GUIDED TOUR

Benefit from skip-the-line access to some of the Vatican’s top attractions on this guided tour. Admire the beautiful Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. Feast your eyes on the artwork of old masters like Michelangelo and Raphael. Explore the Pio Clementine Museum, Belvedere Courtyard and more. Discover one of the most beautiful sites in the World on this fantastic 3 hour tour of the Vatican with skip-the-line access.

Explore the Vatican Museums, the exquisite Sistine Chapel and the dramatic St. Peter's Basilica.  Head to the Vatican Museums and let your guide bring the works of art to life at the Pinecone Courtyard, the Hall of Maps, the Gallery of Tapestries, and the Gallery of Candelabra. You'll learn about the figures responsible for these works and their history along the way.

Later, visit the magnificent Sistine Chapel. Take some time inside the world-famous room to pick out the details you hear about – Michelangelo’s self-portrait, for example, in which he expresses to the world that he would rather be skinned alive than paint in the Sistine Chapel again. As incredible as his work is, it must have been back-breaking – a fact you’ll understand all the better after you learn what it takes to create a fresco.

After the Sistine Chapel you will have direct no line access into St.Peter’s Basilica. Enjoy on your own peace the holiest place in Christendom. See the incredible altar and marvel la Pietà, the Michelangelo’s beautiful sculpture before heading outside to St. Peter’s Square.

The tour finishes in St. Peter’s Square, where you can admire Bernini’s clever optical illusion, spot the balcony from which the Pope delivers his public addresses, and take photos of the imposing exterior of the Basilica.
