Our Complete Vatican Tour ensures that you get inside the Basilica (not to mention skip the lines!) with your expert guide to enjoy Michelangelo’s Pietà, Bernini’s baldachin, and the chair of St. Peter, among other treasures.

We’ve spent years growing a team of passionate experts who want to share the Vatican with you. Combine them with a small group and you have a recipe for sight-seeing perfection! We also use privileged entrances at the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica, bypassing general access lines that can stretch for hours at each site during high season.

Mario was our guide and he was OUTSTANDING -- really made history come alive, great sense of humor, and very personable. We did more tours with you -- Pompeii (Andrea the accompanying guid eand Paolo the local Pompeii guide - again OUTSTANDING), and then today Emma for the Collosseum: same story ! We are REALLY impressed with WalksofItaly, exceeding expectations.

We visited Rome for 5 days and our tour of the Vatican was certainly one of the highlights of our stay. Our tour guide (Eleanor) met us promptly at L'Ottagono Cafe and took us over to the Vatican Museums Entrance for the tour. She gave us so much information during the tour that helped us appreciate not only the Vatican, but it's relationship to other sites we saw during our stay in Rome. She always asked if we had more questions, and gave us time to stop and take pictures. She obviously had a love of the history of Rome.
