Meet your guide in Vatican City to begin your wheelchair-friendly tour of the Vatican complex, home to one of the world's greatest art collections. You’ll be provided with a headset, which allows you to hear your guide’s commentary throughout your tour.
With your skip-the-line ticket, head past the entrance line and straight inside to start your exploration in the Pinacoteca Gallery, where you’ll see revered works of art like Raphael’s Transfiguration, Caravaggio’s Deposition from the Cross and Da Vinci’s unfinished St Jermone. Learn from your guide about the history of the gallery, which was created for Pope Pius XI, and the stories behind the paintings.
Next, visit the Chiaramonti Museum to gaze in wonder at the approximate 1,000 statues and sculptures of cherubs, gods and emperors that make up this arched gallery, founded in the early 1800s by Pope Pius VII. Hear about some specific pieces from your guide before continuing to the Sistine Chapel, home to Michelangelo’s iconic frescoed ceiling and the place where cardinals gather when it's time to elect new popes. Before you enter, your guide will provide a little insight about the chapel and Michelangelo's famed works inside like The Creation of Adam and The Last Judgement (talking isn’t permitted in the chapel). Your tour ends at the Sistine Chapel.
