Not only the complex of the Vatican Museums makes up the largest museum in the world, but it is also one of the world’s most visited, with more than 6 million people accessing it in 2018. In such a place, queues can be pretty long and touring can become stressful, that’s why choosing one of the Vatican Museums’ official tour operator partners makes a big difference. After meeting your professional guide at our meeting point, you’ll be given a headset and you’ll reach the Vatican Museum’s entrance, in a group of no more than 30 people. This less stress guided tour will grant you a real skip-the-line, faster access through the exclusive official partners' entrance, saving you the hassle of waiting in line for several hours. You’ll tour the gallery, visiting all those main spots you’ve heard about like the Gallery of Maps, the Gallery of Tapestries, the Borgia Apartments. The guide will tell you everything about the Raphael Rooms (only in the morning options) and their exceptional frescoes, including The School Of Athens, and will bring you to the Sistine Chapel, whose ceiling is one of the cornerstone works of High Renaissance art. The tour couldn’t be complete without a visit to St. Peter’s, the Basilica that isn’t only the largest church in the world, but that contains several pieces of fine art: think the canopy designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini or the Pietà by Michelangelo. And to top it off, gaze the majestic St. Peter’s Square, the open space which lies before the basilica, redesigned by Gian Lorenzo Bernini and being itself an architectural masterpiece of the Baroque age.
