What to expect

Experience the Vatican as few people have ever seen it with this fully guided tour.

Begin with an American-style breakfast among the majestic views of the Vatican with unparalleled serenity before the public is allowed inside.

Then join your expert guide for a semi-private tour of the Vatican Museums. Saunter along our carefully designed route to admire exquisite centuries old art collections and archeological wonders.

From there, visit the Sistine Chapel – the Pope’s personal place of worship. Marvel at Michelangelo’s artistry as you immerse yourself within one of the world’s most significant landmarks.

Finally, your guide will avoid long lines to get you into St. Peter’s Basilica to explore one of the pillars of the Catholic Church. Remain in St. Peter’s Basilica after the tour to experience more of this amazing church at your leisure, or step back outside St. Peter’s Square to admire Bernini’s clever optical illusion and the basilica’s heavenly facade.

Where

Via Tunisi, 4, 00192 Roma RM, Italy

Meeting point:
At the bottom of the wide steps across the street from the entrance of the Vatican Museums. The steps are located between Caffè Vaticano and Hotel Alimandi Vaticano, on the corner of Viale Vaticano and Via Tunisi. The coordinators will be wearing blue City Wonders/Guideman polo shirts or jackets for easy recognition. It is the responsibility of all visitors to be at the meeting point 15 minutes before departure.
What to remember
  • This tour involves a fair amount of walking and stairs; comfortable shoes are recommended
  • We regret that we are unable to accommodate guests with wheelchairs or any impairments requiring special assistance. We are also unable to accommodate strollers or baby carriages on our group tours.
  • Entrance into religious sites requires a strict dress code. Knees and shoulders MUST be covered for both men and women. The Tour Operator cannot be held responsible for refused entry due to improper dress.
  • Please note that large bags/tripods/umbrellas/backpacks are not permitted in the Vatican and must be checked into the free luggage storage area. Please do not bring these items as you may need to leave the tour early to retrieve them at the entrance. Only very small bags are allowed.
  • In the case of bad weather, the breakfast portion of the tour will be indoors and not in the Pinecone Courtyard.
  • The Vatican Museums are among the most highly trafficked sites in the world. With over 5 million visitors in 2013 and numbers rising year-on-year, the museums give rise to a whole new meaning of the word “crowded.” Our tour routes are designed to minimize exposure to crowds as much as possible, but be aware that the museums are very busy by nature
  • Each tour has a maximum of 13 participants

    Ottima guida. Email di conferma aveva ora di ritrovo non corretta (6:30 invece di 7:30) ma per il resto perfetto.
