    On this tailor-made tour through the Vatican Museums you will enjoy a free pick-up service from your accommodation by one of our experienced English speaking drivers. You will be taken to the most crowded museum entrance where you will meet your private guide. With your "Skip the Line" ticket, you can pass directly by the queue to the security checkpoint.

    The tour begins on a beautiful panoramic terrace with a breathtaking view of the dome of St. Peter's Cathedral. This is the perfect place to take a great photo!

    The guide will then guide you through all the highlights of the museums, including masterpieces and artifacts from different cultures and civilizations. You will enter the Pio Clementine Museum, famous for its ancient Greek statues such as the Laocoon Group. Then you will marvel at the huge tapestry room and enter the Sistine Chapel through the room of painted cards. The chapel's influence on history, religion and fine arts is unique in the world.

    After visiting the Sistine Chapel, through a special door that is only accessible when accompanied by a licensed tour guide, you will reach the largest Catholic church in the world, St. Peter's Basilica.

    Here are Michelangelo's sculpture "Pieta" and the tombs of the popes, including St. John Paul II and St. Peter.
    The tour ends at St. Peter's Square, where you can admire the Bernini Colonnade and the impressive façade of the Basilica.

    For those who are interested in buying religious items or official Vatican products, the guide will take you to the official Vatican shop and finally show you the nearest taxi station or metro.
