Spirituality, inspiring art, and bewitching beauty in the heart of Rome. Enjoy a unique cultural experience in the heart of Rome: a private skip-the-line Vatican tour that includes viewing of the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Cathedral.

Designed to provide a novel, diverse and privileged viewpoint on the art, history and magnificence of the Sistine Chapel, St Peter’s Cathedral and Vatican Museums, our private skip-the-line Vatican tour is a veritable journey through the centuries.

The added value? Early access to the Museum, a private dedicated guide leading your tour, and a luscious VIP breakfast served inside the Vatican Museums.
Meet your guide, an expert specialized in art and art history, enter the Museums with priority tickets, and get ready to enjoy an inspiring voyage through Catholicism. 

Explore the mesmerizing art collection of the Vatican Museums escorted by your guide. Your skip-the-line Vatican tour includes viewing of the highlights, comprising Raphael’s hall, the geographical maps, tapestries, and statue galleries, as well as the Sistine Chapel, home to Michelangelo’s incredible ceiling fresco.

Huge, life-like, and dramatic, this masterpiece is a display of amazing portraits, including Adam and Eve, God, St. Peter, and even the artist himself. Inside the Chapel, you will have the opportunity to learn about how the Pope is elected during the conclaves, and enjoy in-depth viewing of the artwork.

The skip-the-line Vatican tour ends with an introduction to St. Peter’s basilica from outside.
Depending on the regulations in force at the time of the tour (often changing and decided by the Direction of the Vatican Museums) sometimes it might be possible to have a direct skip-the-line access to St. Peter's Basilica, but this cannot be guaranteed.

Our signature skip-the-line Vatican tour is more than a guided visit. It is an awe-inspiring emotional experience you’re bound to remember forever.
