Your experience


  • Go directly to the Vatican Museums with pre-booked tickets without queuing
  • See the most important works of the Vatican's collection on a carefully curated tour of the museums
  • Marvel at Michelangelo's famous frescoes in the Sistine Chapel shortly before its closure
  • Get all the details about the Sistine Chapel before you visit it on your own
  • Small groups of 20 people or less and headsets for each guest ensure an intimate experience


Begin your tour by taking the ones without queuing to get to the museums. Immerse yourself directly in the galleries that contain some of the most famous works of art in the world. Your knowledgeable English-speaking guide will provide you with insightful insights and connections as well as exciting stories as you explore the Raphael Rooms, the Belvedere Courtyard with "Apollo Belvedere" and "Laocoön and Sons", the Courtyard of the Pine cone, the Gallery of Candelabras, the Gallery of Maps and the Gallery of Tapestries.

Shortly before closing time you will drive to the Sistine Chapel. Before entering, your guide will explain the stories behind the creation of these iconic frescoes and what they mean. Upon entering the building, you can enjoy the full majesty of the space and discover the small details and peculiarities that most visitors do not notice here.

Spend about 20 minutes admiring the chapel on your own. Your guide will then take you out of the chapel through a special door and take you to St. Peter's for an independent visit.

While many tour operators include 25 or more people in their Vatican trips, we will never put you together with a group of more than 20 people. We have a passion for the Vatican and would like to share this passion with you in small groups. Our tours are led by the most dedicated and experienced guides in the Vatican.

Please note

Additional information

Please remember that the Sistine Chapel is a holy place and that clothing must be appropriate for the visit. Both men and women are asked to wear clothing that covers at least the shoulders and knees

Although the Vatican Museums are equipped with lifts for wheelchairs and pushchairs, they are not located at the place where the group tour takes place and only offer access to certain areas of the Museums. For this reason, we cannot accommodate wheelchairs on our group tours in the Vatican.

Only small handbags can be taken to the Vatican Museums. Larger backpacks and pointed umbrellas etc. must be left at the cloakroom. It is the guest's responsibility to return to the entrance of the Vatican Museum to pick it up after the tour.

Please make sure that all members of your group can show a valid ID on the day of the visit. This is especially important for guests who have qualified for child discounts.
