The Vatican may be the smallest country in the world, but with a total of 11 museums inside the Vatican Museums, plus St. Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel, the tiny papal enclave punches well above its weight in the art world. Get immersed in all of it with this comprehensive guided tour, and explore the Vatican Museums, St. Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel, all with one ticket.

Visiting the Sistine Chapel is an experience you will never forget! Stare in delight at Michelangelo’s famous The Creation of Adam, see The Last Judgement, and spend time taking in the enchantment of the Pope’s private chapel.

Then, take advantage of a special access to the Basilica, which will save you from long queue at the main entrance. Once inside, admire "La Pietà", a stunning Michelangelo sculpture created by the artist when he was just 24. You'll also zee Bernini’s "Baldacchino", the ornate bronze canopy that sits above St. Peter’s high altar; and so much more!

There is more to see and learn than I imagined. The guide did a good job. She was very knowledgeable. It was extremely crowded and that made seeing and hearing challenging.
