tickitaly.com - sightseeing, not queueing.

A guided tour of the extensive Vatican gardens and the Sistine Chapel. Starting early morning (Monday to Saturday), subsequent entry into the rest of the Vatican is included in the cost.

This is an official, Vatican-organised tour that in approximately two to three hours takes in much of the gardens and parklands that form more than half of the entire Vatican territory, covering almost 50 acres (20 hectares). The gardens became established during Baroque and Renaissance times, with legend having it that the Vatican gardens were spread with earth brought from Golgotha by Saint Helena. The tour also includes the Gallery of the Candelabra, the Gallery of Maps, the Gallery of Tapestries, and the Sistine Chapel.
