You'll visit the Rooms of Raphael, The Belvedere Courtyard, The Sistine Chapel and much more. Your guide will show you around, make sure you avoid any unnecessary queuing and share his knowledge about the many art treasures.
After we exit The Sistine Chapel, your guide will show you to St. Peter's Basilica where you can browse around this incredible church on your own for as long as you like.
We also offer the same identical tour in the morning - Vatican Morning Tour. If you would also like a guided tour of the Vatacombs and St. Peter's Basilica, then try our Vatican Museum, Vatacombs and St. Peter's Basilica tour instead!

"Tudo funcionou perfeitamente, no entanto, o local é extremamente cheio, dificultando bastante a apreciação de suas obras de arte."

Fantastisk oplevelse og en fantastisk guide
"Guiden var helt fantastisk, hun var virkelig god til at fortælle om tingene og sørge for at vi fik en god oplevelse. Men vær forberedt på virkelig mange mennesker og husk vand."
Bra guidning på Vatikanens enorma konstsamlingar
"Vår guide Massimo gjorde besöket på Vatikanstaten roligt, intressant och begripligt. På bra engelska och med varm humor berättade han om religös och historisk bakgrund till Vatikanens samlingar av fantastiska målningar och skulpturer. Han svarade insatt på frågor från oss besökare."
