tickitaly.com - sightseeing, not queueing.

A morning tour of the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St Peters (from the outside only) with professional guide and skip-the-queue tickets. The tour lasts roughly 3½ hours and is available Monday to Saturday, starting at 8.30 AM (and 11:00 AM in high season).

This is a full-length guided tour of the Vatican that also includes an accompanied external viewing of St Peters. Please note, however, that there is no visit to St Peters if you opt for a tour on Wednesday (due to the Papal Audience) - you'll have a tour of the Vatican Library on a Wednesday.

The tour will introduce you to a large part of the Vatican City as well as the St Peters, the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel. You'll visit the Gallery of the Candelabras, the Gallery of the Geographical Maps, the Gallery of the Tapestries (Renaissance art), the Sobiesky Hall, the Immaculate Conception Hall and the Sistine Chapel.
