Small parties tours
SAINT PETER’S BASILICA, VATICAN MUSEUM AND SISTINE CHAPEL
*Skip the line*
This tour allows you to enjoy some of the most famous artistic treasures in the world including Michelangelo’s frescoed masterpiece on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and his “Last Judgment”. In addition to the famous Chapel, we will explore breathtaking galleries like the Hall of Tapestries and the wonderfully ornate Map Room, Courtyard Of The Pinecone, as well as ancient sculptures and mosaics.
After taking in the highlights of the Vatican Museum you will enter directly into St. Peter’s Basilica, skipping the long line out front, unless there is a Papal Ceremony which will require us to exit from a different gallery and walk around the Vatican wall. The largest in the world, St. Peter’s Basilica was built atop the ruins of the Roman emperor Constantine’s 4th century basilica and on the tomb of Saint Peter. Bernini’s interior design is awe inspiring, the Mosaic art is astounding and Michelangelo’s “Pietà” will leave you speechless. You will have a glimpse of the Swiss Guards, the Pope’s famous balcony, Michelangelo’s dome as well as the roof of the Sistine Chapel and the famous chimney where the smoke signals the election of the new Pope.
The tour concludes at our Vatican office and official Vatican gift shop where any outstanding payments will be made. Clients can browse the gift shop for souvenirs. Also, clients presenting this brochure at checkout will receive an 8% discount on all Vatican gift shop purchases (with the exception of stamps, coins, postcards, and books). The shop can call a safe regular taxi for you when you have finished or your guide can point you in the direction of a good restaurant or cafe.
