Wether it’s your first time visiting the smallest country in the world or the 7th, there’s always so much more to see, and learn. Take our Private Extended Tour of the Vatican City and you will get the chance to see the impressive works of Michelangelo, Raphael, Caravaggio and many more, but you will also get access to the Papal Apartments of the Borgia Family and the infamous Pope Julius II. Soak in the beauty of the Sistine Chapel at your own pace and explore every nook and cranny in the awe inspiring St.Peter’s Basilica. Last but not least, we will go below the Basilica to visit the Tombs of Past Popes with a closer glimpse into the sacred Tomb and Crypt of St. Peter.

The best experience to the Vatican!
Sep. 2021
For those who want to enjoy, learn and be inspired, we highly recommend Maximus Tours and the deeper dive of a 5-hour experience. Our guide, Kristiana, was very knowledgeable and connected history, art and the beauty of our faith. It was an incredible day at the Vatican. We additionally booked a day trip to Assisi with Maximus and they provided direction on other items that made our 2 weeks in Italy most memorable. Grazie Mille to Matt and Kristiana!

Fantastico!
May 2019 • Family
My adult daughter and I just returned home from our two week Italy vacation and this tour with Kristiana was the best part of it all. Her content knowledge was first-rate, the finest I have ever been subjected to. She was gracious and outstanding. Booking the tour was terrific, the staff answered all my questions immediately and was extremely helpful the day of the tour when bad weather altered our mode of transportation to the site. This tour was worth every bit of the cost, a first-class, second to none, most outstanding tour. Grazie Kristiana per una giornata incredibile e indimenticabile.
