Experience Vatican City in all it's glory; from the magnificent museums to the breathtaking art galleries. Learn the history of ancient Rome as your private Vatican guide leads you through the city's iconic landmarks.
Less than 0.5% of Vatican visitors get to see Rome from St. Peter's Dome (or even know about it), this is an incredible statistic! From nowhere else do views of the Eternal City surpass those which can be seen from Michelangelo's Cupola, so for this reason we have decided to take it from the top!
Meet your expert Vatican guide by St. Peter's Square where you will no doubt agree that 550+ steps is rather too much early morning exertion for most. A quick ascension by elevator later will carry you up to St. Peter's Terrace, a place devoid of large tourist groups and babbling tour leaders from where you can see all of Rome and far beyond Rome too. The views are absolutely spectacular and even that is an understatement.
Back on terra firma you will tour the entirety of St. Peter's Basilica - this in itself is quite rare as the majority of skip the line Vatican tours skip most of St. Peter's too. A 45 minutes to 1 hour break follows before you will assemble at our comfortable air conditioned wifi customer center ahead of a second tour of the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel.
Genuine skip the long public line access at the entrance to the museums means that you will be fast tracked to the artistic and archaeological masterpieces which make the Vatican Museums absolutely must-see when in Rome.
Unfortunately, this tour is NOT wheelchair accessible.
Sturdy, comfortable footwear advised.
