Vatican Tours

Welcome to one of the most impressive art collections in the world!  This private tour brings you through hallways once only accessible by the Pope & his close clergy.  With over 4 miles of rooms full of art, your private tour guide has selected la creme de la creme to make this tour a  memory of a lifetime! The Sistine Chapel is the highlight of this tour with frescoes from Michelangelo, Botticelli & many more Renaissance artists and ends inside the largest Church in the world: Saint Peter’s Basilica.

NB –  This tour is NOT offered on Sundays because the Vatican Museums are closed.  On Wednesdays the Basilica is closed in the morning due to the Papal Audience, so morning tours will cover the Raphael Rooms instead of the Basilica.
