About
The Vatican has stood as the center of the Catholic Church since the early decades of Christianity when it was a place of martyrdom and the place where St Peter is believed to have been crucified upside down. So much history sits inside the Vatican museum complex that no time should be spent waiting outside. As the most visited place in Rome, the Vatican serves 4.2 million people a year. The lines, as you can imagine, can be long, sometimes hours long, and exhausting for anyone who has to wait in them. Keep your energy for the good parts, the Vatican museum, Sistine Chapel, and St Peter’s Basilica. With a Vatican Skip-The-Lines Tour, you get to go in a small group through a special museum entrance. Once inside your guide will take you a journey of the best known and some of the obscure parts of a place that contains some of the world’s most important historical treasures. This is the perfect small group tour for those who want to see the major highlights of the Vatican City.

Great until we got lost
Oct. 2019 • Couples
This could have been a fantastic tour of the Vatican and indeed it started out that way. Unfortunately, we got separated from our guide about half way through and, despite having attempted to text her and the agency, they felt unable to wait for or meet up with us. We actually thought we got ahead of them and waited for the group for 35+ minutes before finally hearing that, somehow, they’d gotten ahead of us and wouldn’t be waiting any longer. Big disappointment for the price paid. But the guide really was great for the time we spent with her.

Hello Martin You actually did not miss any of the tour you booked, as you did not request or pay for the St Peter's Basilica portion of the tour, which is at the end, and the tour of the museums and Sistine Chapel had in fact ended when you got lost from the guide. Even though you were not missing anything, the guide went back and forth through the museums looking for you, before proceeding to the Basilica with the other 2 clients on the tour, as they had booked that portion so she had to proceed. Unfortunately it was not possible to reach you by phone as cellphone signals are blocked inside the Vatican Museums. Thank you for taking the time to let us know that you enjoyed the tour with Marle, and I trust that this response finds you well and serves to reassure you that you did not miss out on any of the tour you booked! Kind regards Gerard.
