Skip-the-line at the Vatican Museums on this tour of one of the world’s most renowned collections of art. With a private guide, go straight inside the complex to admire the Vatican’s architecture, marvel at works by masters like Raphael and Caravaggio, and see some of the ‘hidden,’ off-the-beaten-path sites that many visitors miss. Of course, you’ll visit the Sistine Chapel to see Michelangelo’s famous frescoes, and enter St Peter’s Basilica from the museums, avoiding the main entrance line.

This tour was amazing and our guide, Marco, was fantastic! Honestly, we thought we were doing a group tour, we didn't mean to purchase the private tour, but we're glad we did! Personal attention, great guide, plus you get to pass everyone and see extra things that others didn't see. Wonderful! THANK YOU MARCO!!!
Exceeded Our Expectations

Our tour was fabulous! Azzurra was a sensational tour guide, made us feel completely comfortable, and was a fountain of knowledge about everything she showed us. We skipped all the lines, and got into areas that others were not allowed to enter. She made us feel special from the first moment she picked us up at the hotel. We didn't just SEE things - we EXPERIENCED them thank to her. My wife has bad knees, and she kept the pace to one that suited us. It was truly a great time, and we can't imagine we could have enjoyed it any more than we did. The history was awesome. We heartily recommend this tour, and this tour guide! You made our whole trip.
So much to see

This tour is great. The Vatican Museums are enormous and there is no way to feel like you didn't miss something, because its impossible not to. That said, we had a great selection of some of the more common rooms, but also had the chance to be alone with some of the most impressive statues and artworks created.
Wow- Marco was above average

We were in Rome 23.5 years ago and missed visiting Vatican City, due to bad timing. This time we returned with our kids now 19 & 21 and were NOT going to miss it again! We choose the Hidden Gems tour and had the pleasure of having Marco as our guide. Considering he was a professor and an archeologist on vacation from a project it was a true strike of luck to get so much historical information. Our son called him an Italian Indiana Jones. Lol. We were pleased that we were the only people in our tour, no flags and no lines. What a great experience.
Best tour yet

We had a private tour with tour guide Katie. It was an excellent tour. Besides being pleasant and helpful during the tour her knowledge of the subject and detail of the history was very enlightening. We enjoyed the tour and learned a lot.

Fantastic. Our tour guide, Eli’s Taddei was on time, friendly, extremely well organized, patient with our 13 person group. She was so knowledgeable. She made it all come alive. Can’t imagine how it could have been a better experience.
