Description
Meet our Expert Guide at foot of the steps across the street from the Entrance of the Vatican Museums, and depart for this visit at some time sharp, don't be late!

The Vatican may be the smallest country in the world, but with 9 miles of priceless artwork held in over 2,000 rooms, navigating it can be overwhelming. Even before exploring this vast collection visitors can endure a wait of up to 3 hours in the public queue, and even up to one hour in the Skip the Line queue. If you want immediate access to the museums and to be taken on the absolute best route through the most iconic sights, leave yourself in the capable hands of an Official Vatican Partner. This highly exclusive status, earned through taking over a million visitors through the museums over the years, grants you the privilege of No Wait Access through the Partner's Entrance, as well as the most comprehensive itinerary on the market, honed through a decade of experience.

As you stroll past the long lines, your English-only speaking guide will provide you with your own personal headset, ensuring you won't miss a moment of their educational and entertaining commentary. With so many fascinating artefacts to admire, you'll appreciate having the freedom to get up close to these masterpieces without having to remain by your guide's side to hear their incredible stories. Your group of 20 people or fewer gives you the flexibility to move easily from room to room while affording you personalized attention from your guide and the opportunity to ask as many questions as you like.

Be astonished as your guide takes you through rooms such as the Galleries of the Candelabra, Tapestries, and Maps, where treasures from the past surround you and come to life with your guide's enthralling storytelling. Meet artistic giants such as Raphael and Michelangelo as you admire the intricacy of the famed Raphael Rooms, and have your breath taken away by the Creation of Adam in the Sistine Chapel.

End your comprehensive tour in St. Peter's Basilica, where you'll benefit from privileged Skip the Line access, ensuring you waste no time in seeing another artistic triumph; Pietà. Immerse yourself in the stunning beauty of this cathedral, topped by the famous towering dome, before emerging in St Peter's Square to pick out the balcony from where the Pope delivers his public addresses.

The service ends at St. Peter's Basilica in St. Peter's Square.
