tickitaly.com - sightseeing, not queueing.

The benefits of a skip-the-lines tour that takes in the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's in a single (approximately 3 hour) tour are self-evident, but the benefits of a passionate, informed and official Vatican guide in a group that never numbers more than 18 people are perhaps less-so, until you understand that a lot of Vatican tours take place with groups of up to 50 people, and can be light on detail and heavy on speed.

No, this is a far more intimate tour. You'll be escorted past the often terrifyingly-long lines, put on your headphones, and have the Vatican uncovered by your expert guide, a guide who wants you to understand the Vatican rather than just glimpse it. The tour begins in the 'Pinecone Courtyard', the vast open space in the heart of Vatican City.
