About
A holiday in Rome without visiting the Vatican is like a day at the beach without swimming in the sea. See the best of the Vatican museums and gain direct entrance with skip-the-line access to the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica, while our excellent guides entertain you with stories that go with each masterpiece. . This budget-friendly tour is the best value for money for travellers that are interested in 1) seeing the museum’s highlights 2) meeting a new friend or two through your group and 3) skipping the lines (trust us, with over 6 million tourist spilling into the museum every year, you'll want it!) . Disclaimer: you will be entering the Vatican museum during one of the busiest times of the day. While the tour provides skip-the-line access, the crowds in the museum vary from day to day and some delay with security can be expected (it would be misleading for other tour operators to not tell you this!)

Excellent tour from an excellent guide - Giuliano! Thank you so much for the great day we had at the Vatican and for making our experience so enjoyable even with the restrictions we have at this time.

My favorite tour in Rome. My husband and I learned a lot about all three locations, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of great tips that we used in the rest of our journey through Rome. 10/10 would recommend. Giuliano was great!

Great Tour!
Robert was an EXCELLENT guide! He incorporated stories into the tour, with history and fun facts. He always set our expectations to know when we would have a line, when we could take pictures, when we would find a restroom, etc. We had a rainy day, but the tour was still so lovely! Highly recommend.

Absolutely Incredible guided tour through the Vatican, Sistine Chapel & St. Peter's Basilica
Nov. 2021
It is no chance that this is one of the highest-rated guided tours to the Vatican, Sistine Chapel & St. Peter's Basilica. I would definitely book again if I had the chance!

Giuliano (our tour guide) did an excellent job at explaining to us the history behind all of the places that we visited, and he did with such a charisma that made the well worth 3-hour tour all the more enjoyable. While 3 hours might seem like a lot, but the time went flying at his guidance and I never had the feeling that the tour might have been too long. Quite the opposite, I wish we had more time to see other rooms of the Vatican Museum!

My only "complain" is that on the guided tour to the Vatican museum, we didn't go to one of the most famous rooms (the Raffael Rooms). Had I not seen some of the souvenirs at the museum (there are at least three, so if you regret not buying something right after, you will get another chance no worries), I would have missed the frescoes that are there (In my opinion, less or equal impressive than the ones in the Sistine chapel).

Worth the money
Nov. 2021 • Solo
Giuliano was great. Very friendly and practiced. The tour covered the main points of interest in the basilica, though not the crypts or the dome. (You can go back after the tour on your own though if those matter to you.) It also covered the museum very well, including the Sistine Chapel. Roughly three hours at a good pace, with lots of good places nearby for lunch—or a short cab ride back into the heart of Rome. There wasn’t much of a crowd because of off-season and COVID, so a great time to go for those who want more time with the art and to avoid both the rush and the heat of summer.

An essential tour for anyone visiting Rome. The Basilica is especially mind blowing and the skip the line and guided tour is so worth it for everyone. Absolutely recommend and very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Informative and great value for the price
Nov. 2021 • Couples
The guide was very cordial and thorough with his explanation. We really enjoyed our experience. He seems to be very experienced and knew the place inside out, what to look at and for how long. He doesn’t bore you with a harangue and he doesn’t skip the important moments to pause. Overall one of the best tours you can find!

Excellent Lucia
Nov. 2021
Lucia was an outstanding guide. Her knowledge and clear explanations helped us to understand and better appreciate the skills and dedication of the artists. It was all delivered in an interesting and engaging manner.
She also gave us great practical advice so that we could make the most of the opportunities to revisit things we wanted to spend more time on. Worth every penny!
