On our private tours, you decide who tours with you and your own private guide. They're priced for up to 2 people, but you can easily increase the number of participants when you book your tour with an automatic price adjustment.
The Ultimate Guide
Our No-Wait Access Private Vatican Tours typically follow a carefully crafted route through the museums, visiting all of the must-see parts such as the Raphael Rooms, the Gallery of Tapestries and the Laocoon and His Sons sculpture that inspired Michelangelo.
Be amazed as you enter the Sistine Chapel and experience two of the world’s most famous masterpieces for yourself – The Last Judgement and The Creation of Adam. With a coordinating commentary from your guide, you’ll see things that other visitors never spot – like Michelangelo’s bone-free self-portrait, his message to the world that he would rather be skinned alive than paint the Sistine Chapel again.
Our enthusiastic, passionate and knowledgeable tour guides will make your Vatican experience one to remember. For customized itineraries and times, contact our Customer Care team. They’ll be happy to answer all your questions and help with your travel arrangements.
