The Sistine Chapel and Saint Peter's Basilica Express Tour is focusing on seeing the must-see highlights of Vatican.
When it comes to the Vatican, it pays to know three things that will make your day and experience so much better. First, the Vatican is immensely popular so the entrance line is often long and tiresome. Second, the Vatican is incredibly large and the amount of art and information can be overwhelming. Third, there are many parts to the Vatican, different types of tickets, and it is hard to know what is available and which is best.
If you have a limited amount of time to adventure into one of the largest museums in the world, then the Sistine Chapel Express Tour with Saint Peter’s Basilica is the best option and value for you.
Ideal for families, travelers on a shore excursion, and in general, for visitors wanting to make the most of their time, this express tour will help you navigate (in only 2.5 hours) the greatest masterpieces of the Vatican, the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica of Saint Peter with a very small group.
Gather at 07:30 am outside the entrance of the Vatican Museums and after skipping the line with our priority tickets, leave the crowds behind, connect with the masters, and be in the presence of greatness.
Our guide will swiftly lead you through the Vatican Museums, highlighting the unique treasures and masterpieces to end inside the Sistine Chapel and the Last Judgment of Michelangelo. Once you have seen the Sistine Chapel you can decide to stay longer in the Vatican Museums or follow your guide for a comprehensive visit of the of St Peter’s Basilica to admire Bernini’s Baldachin, Michelangelo’s Pieta and the crypt of the Popes.
