Overview

Visit the Vatican Museums on a skip-the-line tour that includes the usual sights—such as the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica—plus the Vatican Necropolis, which is not included on most Vatican tours. You'll head underneath the basilica to see a part of the Vatican that most visitors never do, where it's believed the remains of Peter lie. Booking this tour allows you to avoid the stress of navigating the large and crowded museums on your own.
  • Explore the Vatican Museums with a guide so you won't miss the top artworks
  • Gain insight into the art and history that you might otherwise miss
  • Priority entry means you won't waste time standing in the ticket queue
  • An exclusive tour of the Necropolis provides a more in-depth Vatican experience
