What to Expect
Visit: Italy in Miniature, Via Popilia 239 Viserba di Rimini - R I M I N I, 47922, Rimini Italy

Get more time in the Vatican’s awe-inspiring art with no-wait access to the museums and basilica.
With a group of 20 people or fewer, your expert guide will bring the art and history to life in the Sistine Chapel, Vatican Museums, St. Peter’s Basilica, and more.

Avoid the long public line and go straight to the front of the Vatican Museums. Learn about the history and people behind the art in the Pinecone Courtyard, the Hall of Maps, the Gallery of Tapestries, and the Gallery of Candelabra. A headset ensures you can hear the guide clearly.

Next, visit and hear the story of the magnificent Sistine Chapel. See if you can spot Michelangelo’s self-portrait, which hints that he would rather be skinned alive than paint in the Sistine Chapel again. (After you learn what it took to create a fresco, you’ll understand why.)

Then, use another exclusive entrance to head straight into St. Peter’s Basilica. See the incredible altar and Michelangelo’s beautiful sculpture, “La Pietà.”

The tour ends in St. Peter’s Square. Admire Bernini’s clever optical illusion, spot the balcony where the Pope delivers his public addresses, and take photos of the imposing exterior of the basilica.
