Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel Skip-The-Line Tour

Skip the line and discover the Vatican in a small group (9 people maximum) with expert, art-historian guide. Let your professional Vatican guide take you through the endless corridors of this vast museum, admire works of Michelangelo in Sistine Chapel while listening to your guide (only small groups are allowed to do explaining inside the chapel) and take a special passage to enter Saint Peter’s Basilica.

The safety of our guests is our number one priority, therefore, our groups for the Vatican tour are 9 people or less. To respect the social distancing and for you to hear the guide clearly, we will provide you with a headset. The use of face masks is mandatory for the whole duration of the tour.

Due to the COVID-19 safety measures, every participant and the guide will have their body temperature taken by the security guards at the entrance to the Vatican Museums. People with a body temperature higher than 37.5C, will not be allowed to join the tour.

What you can expect on this tour of Vatican & Sistine Chapel

You will meet the guide at the entrance to the Vatican Museums and after a short briefing and sound-check (we use headsets for groups larger than 5 people so you can hear the guide clearly) head into the museums. We offer to skip the line access, so you won’t have to lose your valuable time in long queues (Please see the COVID-19 safety measures). Our guides, accredited with the Vatican, will make sure to show you the most important parts of the museums.

Your expert guide will explain the significance of the frescoes in Raphael’s Rooms and Sistine Chapel, and the groundbreaking techniques behind works of Bernini, Fontana, and Sangallo, artists who designed and built Saint Peter’s Basilica.

Excellent day with more of rome and our great guide. Detailed and knowledgeable. We met the group , we were 6 people in total, in front of the Cafe Vaticano. Tour started on time. It was not our first time in Vatican Museum but this time we learned much more.We will recommend More of Rome to all our friends and family.

YOU MUST BOOK WITH MORE OF ROME. It was our second time with them , we came last year to visit Rome for the first time. We did not wait in the long lines. It was very crowded and our tour guide, Anna, kept us together. We used head sets to hear to our guide and it did block out some of the other noise.

My Wife and I learned so much thank to our excellent guide. We took the Vatican tour and we decided to book another tour right on the spot “Secrets of Rome”. We really enjoyed both tours!

On the way to the meeting point I had noticed this huge line of people queuing to the tickets office, the line was at least 1 mile long, and I am not kidding. The meeting point was easy to find the check in and sound check went very fast and we really were in a small group of 10 people so it was almost like a private tour. I saw other groups with over 30 people struggling to keep up with their guides, but we were just 10 so it was very pleasant. Vatican museums are absolute must see, but the crowds can be just overwhelming, so go with smaller groups like More of Rome you wont regret it!
