What People Are Saying About Vatican City

Skip-the-Line Vatican Museums, Sistine & St Peters Tour Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 10/18/2016

Great way to see key highlights. Fantastic guide.

The Vatican Museums are always crowded but our guide picked key highlights and created a very informative tour that enabled us to navigate the crowds with ease. She taught us art history and church history, and made the most of our time in the famous Sistine Chapel. Would highly recommend this tour.

An absolute highlight of our three weeks in Italy!

Mercedes did a superb job of showing us St. Peters in all of its glories. She was very knowledgeable, very sensitive to the interests of her audience, and managed a pace perfectly suited to her group. Highly recommended!
St. Peter's Basilica Guided Tour Reviewed by Wayne, 10/18/2016

Great way to skip the lines, see the papal crypt area

We showed up to Rome, and realized it was a bad idea to go without a tour. We found out that there are only three tour groups that give access to the papal final resting place, and so we jumped to get tickets for two days later. It was pouring on the day we went, so we were very happy to move relatively quickly into the Vatican museums. The Vatican museums are expansive, and there is no way to get to see everything you want to see as a group. We focused on the sources of inspiration for the Sistine Chapel in the museum itself. The Papal tombs (NOT the crypts, this is an important distinction - we only got to tour part of the papal tombs, and fairly quickly) were very interesting, and St. Peter's Basilica was wonderful, especially being a Jubilee year. The tour is fast moving, focused on general public interest for the locations, but is a great way to get in quickly and see the main sights. We were happy for the value paid.
Skip the Line: Vatican, St. Peter's & Papal Tombs Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 10/15/2016

A good way to get to see the 4 main Basilicas.

The trip as advertised was not what was delivered. We booked a private Vatican tour and received a 2hr Vatican Express tour then a separate tour of the 3 Basilicas to enter the Holy Doors.
