Vatican & St. Peter's Private Guided Tour - 3 Hours

This three hour private guided tour takes in the Vatican Museums: the Galleria dei Candelabri, Galleria degli Arazzi and the Galleria delle Carte Geografiche, the Sistine Chapel, and the Basilica of St. Peters. Clients may also request a visit to the Tombe dei Papi. All tickets and costs are included, and prices are shown for group size.

Tickitaly is able to offer two exclusive private Vatican tours, both in the company of a dedicated English-speaking tour guide who will introduce you to the artistic and architectural wonders of the Vatican City, Rome. These are private tours - the group will comprise your party and your party only, offering you a privileged and dedicated tour.

These are exclusive tours, and the price reflects this. However, there is one enormous advantage - peace of mind. Most Vatican tours are put together at the last minute, and may well see timings changed, or not happen at all. You'll book your spot, perhaps months in advance, but you may well not receive confirmation until the day before your tour is due to start. This is not scare mongering, it's just the way that collective tours of the Vatican work. With you'll set off for your trip to Italy knowing that all arrangements have been finalised well in advance.

Both tours last three hours and both tours include visits to the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums. The difference between the two is simple - the first tour, this one, also takes in St Peters - the second does not, and includes a longer and more thorough visit to the Vatican Museums (click here for this second tour).
Both tours are available in English, Italian, French, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian, Portugese and Swedish.

For groups of more than six people the Vatican insist on the use of the 'Whisper' audio system in the Basilica. Your guide will be talking into a small microphone and you'll each be listening on special earpieces. There will be a small charge (currently €1.50 per person) that needs to be paid in cash on the day. For more information on the parts of the Vatican you'll be able to see on the two tours, click here.
