Tour description

If you want to see the highlights of the Vatican but are slightly pushed for time, our private express tour is the ideal solution for you. With your privileged skip-the-line entrance to the Vatican Museums, you'll avoid all the lines. And if you opt for the 7:30 am, starting time you'll be in one hour before the general opening.

Choose your time and meet our expert guide outside the Museums to get underway with your experience. Your guide will walk you straight through to the Sistine Chapel so you can gaze up and admire its treasure trove of stunning masterpiece in relative solitude.

Fresh from the unmissable experience of seeing the Sistine Chapel in all its glory, your guide will take you through the highlights of the Vatican Museums. Marvel at the medieval, Renaissance, and of course ancient wonders that have survived untouched within its halls. Then move on to enjoy the wonders of Saint Peter’s Basilica.

Within the world's most famous church, you'll be introduced to all of its star attractions. Meet Michelangelo’s famous Pietà and artworks by Gianlorenzo Bernini, one of the great exponents of Baroque art in Rome.

This tour offers a quick, fun and effective way to see the Vatican City without the feeling of being rushed, and is suitable for children and/or cruisers with limited time on the mainland.
