TridAdvisor, Certificate of Excellence Image

This is our standard tour for first-timers who only have a half day available

Vatican City is an ecclesiastical treasure house, well worth a multi-day tour – but our superlative guides can condense a 2000-year journey of faith, power and artifacts into three fascinating hours. You’ll cover the most important galleries and courtyards inside the Vatican museums. You’ll see the most famous statues, the achingly beautiful Laocoon Group and Apoxyomenos, and then on to the Gallery of Maps, 500-year-old tapestries, the Raphael Rooms and the Borgia Apartments. Briefly inspect the modern art collection, then on to the breathtaking Sistine Chapel, the masterpiece of the great Michelangelo. Finish with what defies description – St. Peter’s Basilica and its magnificent plaza.
