Step into the Vatican Gardens on a 3.5-hour skip-the-line tour, and discover the artwork and nature that lies in the heart of the Vatican state. After exploring the tree-lined pathways that meander around foliage and architecture, you’ll visit the Sistine Chapel to admire its treasure trove of Renaissance art. Then, finish with a tour of St. Peter’s Basilica before a drop-off back in Rome. Numbers are limited to just 10 people for an intimate tour.
  • Vatican Gardens, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica tour
  • Soak up the peaceful atmosphere of the Vatican Gardens
  • Discover Renaissance artwork as you walk around the greenery
  • Step inside the Sistine Chapel to admire Michelangelo’s frescoes
  • Check out La Pietà inside St. Peter’s Basilica
Start with a pickup from your Rome hotel, or meet at the local operator’s office in the center of the city. Once you’re aboard your transport, you’ll travel out of Rome to the Vatican.

Making your way past the crowds waiting to enter the Vatican Galleries, you’ll head straight inside the gardens to discover the oasis of green space that's been a place of meditation for the popes over the centuries.

As you explore footpaths lined with vibrant flowers, you’ll stumble upon works of art and examples of Renaissance architecture. See the giant labyrinth of hedges, that are typical of 16th-century Italian gardens, and admire the Lebanese cedars.

After strolling through the gardens, you’ll follow your guide to the Sistine Chapel, learning about its Michelangelo-painted frescoes as you go. Hear theories about the secret meanings behind The Creation of Adam and The Last Judgement, then step inside to visit the sacred chapel on your own.

Finish with a visit to St. Peter’s Basilica for a look at Michelangelo’s La Pietà, the bronze Bernini-designed baldachin, and the holy sepulcrum. Your tour ends with a drop-off at the start point.
