Vatican Museums (Sistine Chapel)

The Vatican is the smallest monarchy state in the world with the most famous Chapel on earth.  It has over 9 miles of hallways filled with art! Regardless of your religious beliefs you’ll be blown away by all the beautiful paintings, tapestries, sculptures, frescos and manuscripts.  You’ll cover the highlights with your 100% private tour guide.

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the Vatican has changed the mandatory visiting route within the Vatican Museums.  Due to this change they have eliminated the “short cut” into St. Peter’s Basilica for private tours with tour guides.  You will be able to visit the Basilica on you own at your leisure.  We will show you where and how to enter the Basilica.  The Basilica is free of charge and is open to the public every day except Wednesdays till 2pm due to the morning Papal Audience.
