The tour was incredible! We would do it again without hesitation. Michele made the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel come alive! His passion and enthusiasm were number 1!!! We learned so much! Thank you for everything.

We visited Rome over Easter, and at the last minute, booked this tour. It was the best decision of our trip! Before the day, email communication and instructions were prompt and clear. On the day we met our small group with no problems. Our guide Christina was so great - full of information, considerate of photo opportunities, toilet breaks and very early morning shopping as the Vatican kiosks opened inside. We very highly recommend this company. It’s absolutely worth an early start, so we could appreciate and absorb all the beauty without the pushing crowds. Simply brilliant!

Fantastic Early Morning Vatican & Sistine Chapel Tour
I have only good things to say about my early morning Vatican and Sistine Chapel tour with Michele. I initially had reservations spending money on a tour, but every euro was worth it. Skipping the queues and general public admission alone was worth it, as was having access before the masses. Our guide Michele was also so knowledgeable about the history and artworks, he really made the whole experience that of a lifetime. I will be recommending the tour to everyone I know, and will take it again the next time I come to Rome!

Great tour with Simona from Walks inside Rome
Just returning from 3 days in Rome. Thoroughly recommend Walks in Rome guided tour of the Vatican. Simona prepared us so well for the Sistine Chapel and made us appreciate the history of the collection and the unique qualities of St Peters. Would recommend this company and Simona. We could tell our guided tour had the personal touch that others seemed to lack. We were guided not herded!

Once in a lifetime experience with amazing guide!
We scheduled the early morning Vatican tour and met our guide, Nina aka ’Mama Bear’ at the doors to the Vatican Museum before the sun came up. We were thrilled to learn it would be just the three of us and even more thrilled to be the first people of the day to step foot in the Vatican. Nina was exceptional! Her historical and architectural knowledge was second to none. Considering the Vatican welcomes 30,000 guests a day, touring the city without crowds made it an extra special experience. We highly recommend this and hope that you strike lucky and get Mama Bear as your guide, she is fabulous!!!!!
