Vatican Tour – Small Group
Explore the highlights and hidden gems of the Vatican. Comfortably.
Our Small Group Vatican Tour lets you explore the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica in a truly personal way, with a top-rated guide.
You’ll wander through one of the world’s largest art collections on a pleasant 3-hour journey, while discovering all the secrets about the favored artists of Renaissance and Baroque Popes.
Raphael, Perugino, Botticelli and Pinturicchio are just some of the finest Italian painters you’ll meet on your tour between the halls of the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel, where you’ll finally admire the breathtaking Giudizio Universale by Michelangelo.
You will then enter the magnificent Basilica of Saint Peter, where your guide will share the secrets behind the Burial of Saint Peter, Bernini’s Baldachin and Michelangelo’s Pietà.
Leaving the Church, gripped by all this beauty, you’ll be welcomed in Saint Peter’s Square by stunning statues of the Apostles, Saints and Martires dominating the façade of the basilica and Bernini’s Colonnato.
