Overview

"Entire Vatican & Vatacombs" is our flagship small group Vatican tour which includes St. Peter's Basilica! Absolutely your first port of call when in Rome and the Vatican City.

Skip the long public line with priority access before experiencing all the major highlights inside the famous Vatican Museums! This entire Vatican tour covers the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, "Vatacombs" (we have special access to the underground tombs of former Popes), and St. Peter's Basilica in about three hours.

Such highlights include the Round Room, Sistine Chapel, and Ancient Roman and Greek pieces in the Belvedere Courtyard. We will get you inside the Sistine Chapel quickly without hassle and unnecessary waiting (while still covering the most important masterpieces along the way).

After leaving the Sistine Chapel you will be given direct access to St. Peter's Basilica, a privilege made available especially for you courtesy of When In Rome Tours. Inside the basilica you will see Michelangelo's beautiful Pieta’, Dome, and Bernini's bronze Baldacchino. All other visitors on other tours are forced to exit the Vatican and take the long route!

In conclusion, on St. Peter's Square, your guide will relate the origins of the Vatican City State and Swiss Guard.

When in Rome, experience and enjoy this top-rated Vatican City tour with an expert guide!
