What to expect

A unique and unforgettable journey through art, history, and religion awaits you at the breathtaking Vatican Museums. Set out with a local expert guide on a flexible private tour to see the best this attraction has to offer. Your guide is a knowledgeable insider who will highlight the most important facts, stories, and locations of this spectacular site for you and can personalize the tour to your interests and preferences.

Skip the long lines and begin your journey of discovery through the countless rooms that make up the Vatican Museums. Follow your guide to the main attractions and admire the most iconic pieces. Giulia, one of our local guides, recommends, ‘Gazing at artwork by Michelangelo and Raphael and crossing the Gallery of Tapestries and the Gallery of the Candelabra are just a few musts to get an in-depth understanding of the history and world-class art collection housed in the Vatican Museums.’

Enter the stunning Sistine Chapel and have a close look at its precious frescoes while listening to your guide’s detailed commentary. Giulia, who studied art history, recommends, ‘Stand in awe in front of the Last Judgement and raise your eyes to glimpse the Creation of Adam and other scenes from the Book of Genesis that adorn the ceiling.’ Your tour will continue inside St. Peter’s Basilica, the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture, where you'll admire Michelangelo’s Pietà and St. Peter's Baldachin by Bernini, and conclude in St. Peter’s Square.
