Private tour of the Vatican led by an art historian, including Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and Saint Peter's Basilica



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. 

The three hours duration of this tour allows to see the most important attractions of the Vatican. If you wish to have a more detailed visit, you may add one more hour by choosing the specific option in the reservation box in the top right box of this page.

I wanted to thank you for your help with setting up our transfers and the Vatican tour. While the Vatican was very hot and overcrowded (no fault of anyone) we did feel that our tour guide Lia was very good and made the best of experience. Our transfers were great as well, the drivers very helpful, courteous and on time. These little things that many overlook, were so seamless that they are almost forgotten when you remember the trip at a later date, yet really make the trip in the end. Thank you again. I will definitely recommend your service and tours to others. Warm regards

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
