Vatican Highlights Skip-the-line Tour Description Summary

This guided tour gives you skip-the-line access to the three most important sights in the Vatican City: the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica.

Vatican Highlights Skip-the-line Tour Detailed Description

Your tour will start on the corner of Viale Vaticano and Via Santamaura, where your guide will introduce you to the wanderings of legendary artists Michelangelo and Raphael. You will then skip the line to access the museum, home to the world’s most important art collection. Explore Raphael’s frescoes in the private apartments of Pope Julius II, which express the religious and philosophical ideals of the Renaissance, and which quickly established Raphael’s reputation as an artist in Rome.

From there, head to the magnificent Sistine Chapel to see Michelangelo’s inspirational ceiling fresco of the Creation and his divine depiction of the Last Judgment.

Finally, enter St. Peter’s Basilica with skip-the-line access. This is the global center of the Roman Catholic faith. From Michelangelo’s moving Pieta and imposing dome, to Bernini’s baroque altarpiece and embracing colonnade, this will certainly be an unforgettable adventure into the cradle of Christianity.
