Do this because
  • Admire Michelangelo's frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, the Raphael Rooms and School of Athens
  • Listen to the anecdotes your guide will tell you about St. Peter's Basilica and Michelangelo's Pietà

What to expect

Boasting some of the greatest artworks ever created, the Vatican Museums can be a daunting place to visit — and you can easily spend a day trying to see it all. But if you're short on time in the Eternal City or just want to see its highlights, then this carefully crafted tour is the one for you.

You'll see why the frescoes that Michelangelo painted on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel are often considered the greatest masterpieces of Western art, and you'll admire the work of his most illustrious rival in Raphael's iconic School of Athens. You'll then discover how the two artists drew inspiration from recently unearthed masterpieces of ancient art like the Laocoon and the Belvedere Torso.

You'll skip the lines at the entrance of St. Peter's Basilica and you'll listen to the anecdotes your guide will tell you about the mother church of the Catholic faith, which is also home to Michelangelo's incredible moving Pietà sculpture, as well as Bernini's jaw-dropping baldachin.

  • Refunds will not be provided for missed tours
  • Large bags, backpacks, tripods and large umbrellas cannot be brought into the museums. These items will have to be left at the museum coat check and retrieved after your visit. It would be best to leave such items at your hotel

    Het is enorm druk in de Vaticaanse musea. Als je dan met een binnensmonds pratende, weinig enthousiaste, saai sprekende Italiaan in het Engels op pad ...
