Description:

This private tour of the Vatican begins at the Vatican Museums where entry will be quick thanks to the skip the line tickets.

The Vatican is the smallest state in the world but has one of the greatest museums of the planet. An art historian from the KissFromItaly team will guide you in the discovery of the treasures of the Vatican and help you appreciate all the art and history of  this astonishing place.

The itinerary goes through the Pio Clementino Museum with its rich collection of Greek-Roman art (including the famous statue of Laocoon), the Gallery of Maps, the Raphael rooms (part of the private apartments of Pope Julius II). Going through the vast Papal palace you will then reach  the Sistine Chapel, frescoed by Michealangelo, Raphael, Ghirlandaio, Perugino and generally acknowledged as the greatest masterpiece of Western art.

A direct passage will easily take you inside St. Peter's Basilica, the biggest and most important church for the Catholics of all over the world. This vast and awe-inspiring cathedral is rich in decoration, history and magnificent art. Among its many treasures is the moving Pietà by Michelangelo. The tour of the Vatican will end at Saint Peter's Square with the colonnade designed by Bernini.

As with all our private tours you will have an officially licensed tour guide from the KissFromItaly team entirely dedicated to you and you will be free to decide the pace of the visit and the starting time. For your convenience you may add the hotel pick-up with private driver (one or two ways). Open the options menu in the top right section of this page and select the appropriate box.

Thank you for arranging for us to have Angela as a guide. Angela was delightful and very knowledgeable. Her explanations and background information ahead of the tour, in particular, made our visit very enjoyable and efficient. I will most certainly use your company's services when I come back, because I will. Rome has so much beauty to be enjoyed. Kind regards

Hi Andrea, We are now home in South Africa after our tour of southern Europe and can happily confirm that both of the tours we did through Kiss from Italy were fantastic. Our personal guide Fiorenza through the Vatican was exceptional in all possible ways and very knowledgeable about the Museums and procedures. Thank you and kindest regards
