Looking for a simple, classic tour covering the highlights of Vatican City? What about fast, Skip the Line access? This is the tour for you.

In small groups of 20 people or less, our insider guides will lead you straight to the most important areas of the Vatican Museums. This classic itinerary of the must-see sights includes stops in the Pinecone Courtyard, the Belvedere Courtyard, Room of the Muses, the Round Room, the Candelabra Gallery, Gallery of the Tapestries and Gallery of the Maps.

This tour culminates inside the museums at the Sistine Chapel. Rules are rules, and your guide will be unable to speak while you are inside. However, your insider guide will prepare you for your visit to this word wonder beforehand.

After free time in the Sistine Chapel - you'll enjoy Skip the Line passage to St. Peter's Basilica and a full guided tour inside.

This tour ends at St. Peter's Basilica from where you will be free to explore other areas of Vatican City on your own, or spend more time inside of the Basilica.

*Please note: Tours departing on Wednesdays do not visit the inside of St. Peter's Basilica due to the weekly Papal Audience. It is also possible that due to Papal events, some planned in advance and some at the last minute, that access to St. Peter's Basilica from the Vatican Museums will be closed or that the Basilica will be completely closed off to the public. In these cases, we will do our best to inform guests ahead of time and provide alternatives. This is not always possible, however, and in the case of a last minute interruption, extra time will be spent exploring the Vatican Museums. In such cases, no partial refunds will be provided.
