Your experience


  • Spend 3 hours exploring the Vatican Museums and visiting highlights such as the Raphael Rooms
  • Enjoy the privileged access to the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's Basilica and save yourself the waiting time in the queue
  • Take a 1-hour guided tour of St. Peter's


In the Sistine Chapel one should not be with hundreds of other people. Take advantage of a unique opportunity and enjoy the incredible frescoes of the chapel 45 minutes before the actual opening time.

After spending time in the chapel with Michelangelo's frescoes, your guide will take you through the Vatican Museums and show you the most important works. Since you started earlier, you will be one step ahead in most visitors and will be able to enjoy fantastic art such as the Raphael Rooms, Apollo Belvedere, Laocoon and Sons in relative tranquility.

Once you have visited the museums, you will enter the Sistine Chapel again to go through a special corridor that will allow you to skip the queue to St. Peter's. Here you will enjoy a one-hour guided tour of the huge basilica with stops at Michelangelo's heartbreaking Pietá and Bernini's huge canopy altar. At the end of the tour you can continue to explore St. Peter's Church for as long as you wish.

Please note

Additional information

Please remember that the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica are holy places 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.

Please note that St. Peter's Basilica may be closed during special celebrations, including the Easter festivities. If this happens during your visit, we will spend more time in the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums. In this case we cannot provide a refund.

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.

You are only allowed to carry small handbags in the Vatican Museums. Larger backpacks etc. must be left at the cloakroom. It is your responsibility to return to the entrance of the Vatican Museum at the end of the tour to pick them up.

You book early entry here, but you have to line up just like everyone else. You can't get through security until normal admission time. Then we dawdle around in the garden forever, make a photo stop as well as a toilet break and take it to the museum, until at the very end we arrive for a quarter of an hour at the Sistine Chapel, where it is already full to bursting. Afterwards you will be led to St. Peter's Basilica. There is a short tour and afterwards you are on your own Conclusion: We wouldn't have had to take so much money into our hands. With normal entrance fees we would have got to the Sistine faster (even without any other early admission) if we had gone there right away Our guide didn't allow any questions either, because she talked all the time

Reply of the supplier on 17. October 2018

Dear Partner,

Thank you for taking the time to share our clients' experience with us. We rely on our clients' experience to always improve, so we are very grateful for your comments!

We are sorry to hear the crowds were so terrible on the day that the client visited, and consequently, she was held up at the entrance and at the entry to the Sistine Chapel. Although we have priority access, we can never skip the security lines, which can indeed be long at the height of the season. Unfortunately, this is the busiest few weeks of the year to visit the Vatican, and the number of visitors allowed inside has surpassed 40,000 a day.

We work very hard to ensure the success of each and every one of our tours, and rely on our Customer's feedback, whether positive or negative, to always improve our services. We know how important our clients holidays are for them, and we feel terrible for not meeting their expectations

In regards our guide we have forwarded this situation to our feedback team to investigate further. We value our customer's satisfaction above all and look forward to your reply. If you the clients have any comments or issues they are more than welcome to contact us at any of our customer services numbers US: +1-888-683-8670 (available 24 hours/ 7 days a week) Italy: +39-069-480-4/888 (available 24 hours/ 7 days a week) or by e-mail at

We apologize once again for any inconvenience caused and we truly hope the clients had a lovely time in our beautiful country and enjoy their honeymoon!

All the best,

The Walks Team
