Why Choose It?
- Absorb more than 2,000 years of history and culture.
- Witness the ethereal beauty of the Sistine Chapel's frescoes.
- Marvel at the miraculous relics housed inside Saint Peter's Basilica.
You are on holiday in Italy, so why not make the most of Rome during a visit of the Vatican Museums, the magical atmosphere of the Sistine Chapel and a guided tour inside the most important Catholic Church in the world, St. Peter’s Basilica. Marvel at the miraculous relics housed inside it. Walks Inside Rome will be able to take you on a best Sistine Chapel Tour to admire the ethereal beauty of its frescoes.
A Vatican and Sistine Chapel private tour will take you through the splendor of the Rome of the Popes. A dedicated expert English-speaking guide has selected the very best of the Vatican’s collection, and condensed it just for you. So you can be sure that during your time in the Vatican City you don’t miss anything.
A guided tour with an official and private guide
In the company of an expert guide, you will visit the main sections of the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel. An unforgettable guided tour inside the splendid Vatican City which house one of the largest collections of masterpieces in the world.
- The fascinating experience in the Eternal City begins with the astonishing collection of the many masterpieces of the Vatican Museums. Here important works of art from the Egyptian period to the end of the Renaissance are kept, ancient statues such as the mythological Laocoon, the Apollo Belvedere and you have the opportunity to admire the magnificence of the Raphael Rooms and his frescoes, absolutely not to be missed once you are in the Italian capital.
- The Sistine Chapel is so famous that it almost needs no introduction. Impossible not to visit this incredible mix of paintings by the most glorious artists, such as Botticelli, Perugino, Ghirlandaio that adorn walls. However, they are quite literally overshadowed by the masterpiece above: Michelangelo’s frescoes decorate the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling, depicting Old Testament scenes as rich as meaning as they are in color. Your seasoned guide will you explain the history and hidden meaning of the fresco. Admiring the creation of Adam or the Day of Judgment created by Buonarroti means experiencing a strong emotion, spending time in silent contemplation there would be such a pleasure. Nowadays, it still serves as the Pope’s personal chapel.
- The final stop (for tours lasting an additional hour) is the famous St. Peter’s Basilica, a true concentrate of beauty and majesty. Here there are the dome designed by Michelangelo and several world-renowned artworks as Michelangelo’s Pietà and Bernini’s Baldachin, a huge bronze sculpture which stands above the main altar – where it is located the presumed tomb of St. Peter – made in the 17th century. At the end of the visit, outside Saint Peter’s Basilica, in the center of Saint Peter’s Square stands an obelisk brought to Rome by the mad emperor Caligula. This large square is known above all for the “Urbi et Orbi” blessings pronounced by the Pope at Easter and Christmas.

Then we walked through the market to pick out some of the ingredients, the meats and such. Then we went back to their excellent small group kitchen. We had a wonderful time learning from Sara. She taught us to make ravioli and saltimbocca and tiramisu. It was fun and relaxed and extremely delicious. We thought the whole experience was splendid. 10 out of 10. read less - 9/26/2022

We got to try a ton of different food and even returned to one of the restaurants later in the week. The tour groups are kept small, so our group easily got to know each other throughout the tour. We were especially pleased with how accommodating it was: My fiance is a vegetarian and can be a bit of a picky eater, so he had low expectations going in and this ended up being his favorite activity all week! We actually had a couple of vegetarians in our group and there was always an equally hearty substitute whenever necessary. Super pleased with this experience and with Luca! Best part of our week! read less - 9/21/2022

A great evening with plenty of incredible local food and drink and a really good way to meet and get to know other travellers. The small group size made it much more personal and conversation flowed all evening! Sara (our guide) was absolutely amazing - so friendly and chatty, and so full of knowledge about the local food and Rome/Trastevere's history. She could not have been better.
I'll be coming back to Rome and will definitely be booking this again. Thank you so much, Sara, for making my first trip to Rome that much better! read less - 9/21/2022

His knowledge of Italian cuisine was exceptional, especially welcomed because it included more than just the well known dishes. He was funny and friendly, making our time together unforgettable.
Most appreciated was his offer to remain a resource for the duration of our visit with DELICIOUS recommendations off the tourist path.

This was my third time to the Vatican but this time I took my adult/teen children and wife and we used a tour guide. It was a small group of 9. Just 2 families. She was great. She does this 4 days a week and all the guards knew her by name. If you want to see the Sistine Chapel, then you have to go early. We were one of the first to enter and with her connections basically did not wait on anything. We also entered a section in the Vatican Museums usually off limits to the public, a section with many animal statues and other mosaics. She gave us so much history and culture. My children said it was AP World History made real. You could tell she truly loved what she did. read less - 8/29/2022

It was a very hot summer day and she always looks for ways to give us the information under the shade before we went into the sun. I highly recommend this company and Martha as well. It was very easy to make the reservation and pay. We took the private tour and was perfect. 3 hours that feel like Half hour . We didn’t do any limes to get into the places. Know that if you go by yourself or in other yours you could be up to 2 hours under the sun to get into the coliseum or forum. I highly recommend the private tour. read less - 8/05/2022
