PRIVATE VATICAN TOURS
Skip the long lines by booking a Vatican private tour. We will secure your tickets with reservation for quick entry. Book well in advance.
NOTE: Vatican Dress code (covered knees and shoulders) to enter St. Peter’s Basilica is strictly enforced.
Your Vatican private tour starts with a guided tour of the Vatican Museum and Sistine chapel. Expert tour guides conduct all of our Vatican private tours. The Vatican houses the wealthiest privately-owned collection of masterpieces, showcased in rooms with walls decorated by Raffaello.
The real masterpiece, however, is next door: Michelangelo’s painting of the Sistine Chapel, which unexpectedly revolutionized the world’s idea of art. The Sistine Chapel is still shaping the future of the Papacy: this is where the cardinals lock themselves in to elect a new Pope after the former one has passed away.
NOTE: Customize your tour to include a visit to the Egyptian room complete with a couple of mummies that may be of interest to the younger visitors. For art lover’s, the Raphael’s room may be added to our Vatican private tour but this requires a 4-hour tour.
Your Vatican private tour ends with a guided tour of St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest church in the world. The magnificent and breathtaking complex spans back to 4th century BC, when it was commissioned by Emperor Constantine, though the new cathedral took over 100 years and all of Italy’s greatest artists to build it. Your private tour of St. Peter’s basilica will showcase its vast collection of art including masterpieces by Bernini, Baldacchino and Michelangelo.
