Papal Palace + Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel & Vatican Gardens
Unforgettable, first time there, I was impressed by the size and extend of the Vatican. Sistine Chapel is a must see and the gardens, then with the private train to Catsle Gandolfo makes it unique, Lunch at the gardens was ok as we were in the middle of nowhere tbh Transportation back was also private, would definately recomned it!

Papal Palace + Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel & Vatican Gardens
It was amazing, the tour official know what the best time to see Papal Palace and Vatican Gardens, but you must sacrifice the time to see and enjoying inside Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. So, if you're more nature type, I think it's the best option for you.

This is great tour, could use more time in the museum, but it is condensed. Extremely worth it.
