Description

Discover the world of the Vatican City on a walking tour with access to the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica. Learn about these religious sites from a local guide and skip waiting at the long lines with this entry ticket. Get an in-depth look at the history and art of the Vatican, including the famous frescoes of the Sistine Chapel. Begin your tour at the Vatican Museums, a complex of museums and galleries that house a vast collection of art and artifacts from ancient Rome and the Vatican. The museums feature a wide range of works, including sculptures, tapestries, and frescoes, and are considered one of the most important art collections in the world. Continue to the Sistine Chapel, famous for its frescoed ceiling painted by Michelangelo, which is considered one of the most important artworks of the High Renaissance. The chapel also features other frescoes and paintings by various artists and is used for the papal conclave. End your tour at St. Peter’s Basilica and enjoy visiting it without following a tour group. This is one of the most iconic churches in the world, known for its grandeur and artwork. The basilica features works by Bernini and Michelangelo, including the famous sculpture of St. Peter and the famous fresco of The Last Judgement. As St. Peter’s Basilica is a major pilgrimage site, it may be closed without prior notice for any religious event. Please be aware that St. Peter’s Basilica is closed on some religious holidays, including Christmas and New Year’s Day. The 3-hour tour in this scenario will occur in different areas of the Vatican Museums. Please note that the tour itinerary may vary depending on various reasons. It’s highly recommended to wear comfortable shoes as the tour can be quite long and there’s a lot of walking involved.
