Skip the lines and visit the Pio Clementino Museum, Gallery of the Candelabra, Gallery of the Tapestries, Gallery of the Geographical Maps, Raphael's Rooms and the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica.

The Vatican Museums are a must-see in Rome, not just because of their extensive collections of art, archaeology and ethno-anthropology, all collected by the Popes over the years. They're also the site of some of the most lavishly decorated halls and galleries in the country!

Explore the best of this 5.5-hectare complex with a guide, who'll deliver all the history you can handle as you go.

See some of the Vatican Museums' best classical statuary at the Pio Clementino Museum. Marvel at the huge marble candelabra at the Gallery of the Candelabra, walk a corridor of amazing, intricate tapestries at the Gallery of the Tapestries, and over 40 16th-century topographical maps of Italy in the Gallery of the Geographical Maps.

Head to the four Raphael Rooms, which all form a suite of reception rooms in the palace, famous for their frescoes. Then, in the Sistine Chapel, see two of the world’s most famous masterpieces, Michelangelo's ceiling frescoes, and Giudizio Universale (Last Judgment).

In the mighty St. Peter's Basilica, tour the spiritual center of the Vatican and the world's largest church building. See Renaissance masterpieces and the home of Saint Peter's tomb!

When in Rome... it's a must!
