Making this tour the perfect one is a convenient Skip-The-Line access that allows you to avoid the huge crowds and notoriously long queues. This special tickets also lets you make an advance booking with the option to pay on arrival.

The seat of the Pope and an impeccable treasure trove of immortal art works, the Vatican is known to leave every first time visitor slightly overwhelmed. Marvel at the ancient statues that inspired Renaissance artists, walls covered with fresco-ed maps and a remarkable collection of vibrant Flemish tapestries made in Brussels from drawings by Raphael’s pupils at the Gallery of Tapestries. Trailing an array of famed spots as well quite a few offbeat ones, our expert guide will regale you in an enchanting journey through the riveting world of Vatican history, architecture, and politics, dotted with a cinematic-level darkness of human behaviour and actions rarely found anywhere else.

This tour will present you with some of the most iconic artworks of all times, including the legendary Sistine Chapel and the La Pietà of St. Peter’s Basilica - both done by the inimitable Michelangelo, along with his other renowned works like The Last Judgment and The Creation of Adam. While the former is the seat of papal administration, St. Peter’s Basilica is surrounded by rumours of it being St. Peter’s burial site.

Witness a visual feast with this tour that takes you through some of the most integral places in the Vatican, including:

  • The Pio-Clementino Museum which is full of ancient sculptures including the renowned Apollo Belvedere and the celebrated Laocoön.
  • The Gallery of the Candelabra, which contains classical Roman sculpture from the 3rd century BC to the 3rd century AD along with glorious painted ceilings.
  • The Gallery of Maps, where 40 maps representing papal properties in the 16th century are frescoed on to the walls.

From the magnetic heritage of Catholic traditions to the tempestuousness of global politics to a bank of eye-popping artworks, this tour of the Vatican will not just leave you mesmerised but also make you want to come back for it over and over again!
