Today, Vatican still maintains its position as an independent city-state with Pope governing its political body. The city sits on the hill overlooking the Tiber River and represents one of the most important landmarks of European religious history.
Our tour will take you through the extensive Vatican Museums where you will witness masterpieces of grand Italian artists. You will learn about and appreciate the struggle, effort, and mastery of Michelangelo’s art in silence and peace only found in places of worship. Candelabra Gallery, Gallery of the Maps, Gallery of the Tapestries, and Raphael Rooms… All that will pull you deeper into the experience with stories from behind the scenes.
The tour will peak with the visit of St Peter’s Basilica, one of the most sumptuous churches in the world. This impressive construction took over 120 years to build and entails artistic highlights such as La Pieta, Baldachino, and the Statue of St Peter.

Very good experience. Well worth the early head start and avoid the crowds. Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable.
This tour was absolutely worth getting up early to avoid the queues as well as get a head start on everybody. I don’t remember our guide's name but she was amazing, knowledgeable and very passionate about her job. The enthusiasm really helped to bring the history to life. She also helped to keep my toddler entertained which was a huge help as the tour was way too long for a 2-year old
Long, but AMAZING! It was obvious our guide really loved his job - he was very knowledgeable and so enthusiastic about everything he told us!
Our tour guide was excellent, full of enthusiasm and energy. Her love of art made all the difference!
Definitely worth waking up for! We got a good overview of the Vatican Museums, especially the Sistine Chapel (where we got in before the big crowds) and St. Peter's Basilica. Our tour guide was professional, spoke great English, and was enthusiastic about the job. The tour meets one our earlier that the museums open, you are the first in.
Fantastic tour with very friendly and knowledgeable guide, Isabella.
Incredible! Our guide was detailed and gave us enough time to ask questions and take in all the sites!
