Tour description provided by Viator

Visit the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica on a 3-hour tour. Avoid the long entrance lines with a skip-the-line ticket, and head inside the museum complex to marvel at its wealth of Renaissance art and relics. Learn about the famous Vatican artists from a guide before you head inside the Sistine Chapel and St. Paul’s Basilica. Normally our group Tour size is around 15 - 18 people, and up to 22 people as a maximum.
Meet your guide and group outside the Vatican. Then, armed with your skip-the-line ticket, make your way past the general entrance line to step straight inside the Vatican Museums.  Explore the main galleries, and visit Raphael’s Rooms, a dazzling series of halls that were painted by Raphael and his students. Continue to the Sistine Chapel to see Michelangelo’s lauded frescoes, which adorn both the chapel’s ceiling and its back wall. Listen to your guide to learn about the famous Renaissance artist and hear about his work at the Vatican. After leaving the Sistine Chapel, follow your guide to St. Peter’s Basilica — your last Vatican site of the tour. See more Renaissance artwork, learn about the architecture, and then say your goodbyes to your guide. Your tour finishes inside St. Peter’s Basilica.
