In sintesi

Questo Tour comprende:

Visita la collezione di antichità dei Musei Papali, le incredibili Gallerie degli Arazzi e delle Mappe Geografiche, la Cappella Sistina dipinta da Michelangelo, la Basilica di San Pietro.

The best of the very best! A 3 hour long tour to discover the highlights of one of the most visited museums in the world. Our 5 star Rome and Vatican Museums guide will show you masterpieces by Raphael and Michelangelo, the marvelous statues in the Gallery of the Candelabra and more! Have you ever heard about the incredible Gallery of the Maps with its 36 frescoes of Italian regions, thanks to which we can walk all the way along the “boot”? Want to know more about the beauty and stories of the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling, painted in just four years by Michelangelo Buonarroti? 

Will you enter St. Peter’s Basilica in this Tour?

Yes! From the Sistine Chapel you’ll skip the line to get into St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest church in the world.  There you’ll see the Baroque canopy by Bernini and Michelangelo’s Pieta, as well as the highest dome in Rome and the tombs of some of the most important Popes, including John Paul II.
Our 5 star Rome and Vatican Museums guide will also show you St. Peter’s square, where thousands of pilgrims gather together every week for the papal blessing.
Since afternoon services will be held in the Basilica, the tour of the Church will be enriched by the spiritual atmosphere as warm afternoon light glows through the windows, filling the naves.

Where does the Vatican Classic Tour end?

Normally in St. Peter’s square. At the end of our visit you may also spend more time in the church, exploring for as long as you like (up to closing time if you wish), at your own pace.

IMPORTANT: Please remember that St. Peter’s is a church and there may be changes in opening and closing times according to last minute celebrations. In the case that it is not possible to visit the Church, you will visit extra areas of the museums such as the Raphael Rooms.

You will enjoy an unforgettable experience across centuries of history with a friendlyenthusiastic, officially licensed Rome and Vatican Museums guide who will answer any question with passion and great knowledge of Italian Art History.
