The tour includes skip-the-line tickets to the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel, as well as St. Peter's Basilica.

This excursion into the Vatican’s legendary art and architecture starts at the Vatican Museums, which house the most important ancient art collection in the world. There are a total of 1,400 rooms containing over 65,000 works of art. From the Egyptian Museum to the Etruscan Museum, and the Greek-Roman section to the Collections of Renaissance Art, there is something for everyone!

The following galleries are also part of the Vatican Museums: the Candelabra Gallery, the Tapestry Gallery, the famous Gallery of Maps, the Sobieski and Immaculate Conception Rooms, the loggia of Raphael, and Niccoline Chapel.

Continue to the Sistine Chapel to admire masterpieces by Michelangelo, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Pinturicchio, and Perugino. Then you’ll ascend Bernini’s Royal Staircase to St. Peter’s Basilica, rebuilt in the 16th and 17th centuries.
