Vatican gardens, Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel Guided Tour

Enter Vatican City and enjoy a unique view behind the scenes of the Vatican, including the Vatican Gardens, Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel.

Start your visit with the Vatican Gardens open bus tour with audioguide. Take a 45-minute bus ride of this exclusive landscaped area - designed by great Renaissance architect Carlo Maderno - and soak up the splendor. Encounter the Pope Emerito House, the Vatican Radio Station, the Academy of Science, the Pope’s former Summer Residence, the Vatican Government Palace, a piece of the original Berlin Wall, and the “Fontana dell’Aquilone", a lovely fountain with nice water games. 

See St. Peter’s Basilica from behind, and admire the Cupola from a unique perspective. You can take some photos in the beautiful Vatican gardens, and discover one of the most prestigious museums in the world. This is an exclusive visit, since it is possible to enter Vatican City only by special permission. In the afternoon, when it is completely forbidden to enter, the Pope typically walks around to stroll and pray.

Enjoy the visit of Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel on a guided tour with a professional guide. There are countless things to see, but make sure not to miss the 5 highlights: the 4 dazzling Raphael Rooms that form the public part of the Popes' apartments, the Belvedere Torso, Leonardo Da Vinci’s St. Jerome in the Wilderness, the Round Room and the Sistine Chapel.

Visit the Gallery of Maps, the Gallery of Tapestries and Candelabras and the Chapel of Pio V, before entering the Sistine Chapel and admiring one of the greatest masterpieces in the world. Michelangelo’s frescoes are magnificent works that changed the course of art forever, simply open your eyes and experience the spectacular view.
