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.

We are very happy that we booked a private tour which included a short

We spent a morning with Francesco doings the Hidden Gems of the Vatican. We would give him more stars if we could. He picked us up at the hotel early and gave us a fascinating background on Rome and Italy on our way there. He knew how to move quickly and then spend time at key points or areas of interest. His depth of knowledge was superb especially accompanied by photos and images on his Ipad. We learnt so much while thoroughly enjoying ourselves. Francesco is personable and fun. I would highly recommend him to our friends and would definitely do another tour with him when we are next in Rome.

I can't express how great our tour with Fabiana was. At first, my two young children didn't seem interested in a three hour long walking tour about churches, relics and sculptures. The lines were long, looping around the block. Skipping the line with Fabiana was a tremendous advantage. She was so excited to meet them and immediately showed them the unique details of the Vatican that excited them. She was effervescent and knowledgeable and fun. She answered ALL of their questions and gave details that you could never find in a guide book. In the most crowded areas, she took us through private rooms of the Vatican, and found the emptiest bathrooms and the best souvenir shop. She even was able to help my kids obtain rare and unique Pope coins. She was remarkable and energetic throughout the whole tour. She could read my children and tell when they were tired and needed a rest or a diversion. And she made sure I also got taken care of so I could have a chance to admire and awe the ceiling of my dreams. Fabiana took care of us and made sure we got the most of our vacation.

Elisa was simply fantastic passionate, knowledgeable, patient, concerned we went at a pace that kept everyone engaged, and answered all our questions. Highly recommend her services!

This was a very good tour of the Vatican. The hidd3en gems part was great. We were able to get in to areas of the Vatican that are normally closed to tours. Though a bit crowded due to Italian schools off for their Easter break its was manageable. Our tour guide Claudia was great.

Our guide was very well versed on the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel. My granddaughters were very impressed with her knowledge of the artifacts. There is not much to add to this site after you use the word fantastic and awesome. Definitely a must see when in Rome

This was a five star tour thanks to our wonderful guide Maria Linda. The actual rating of four stars is due to the “Hotel Pickup” portion not being given the “caveat” it should have - if your hotel isn’t conveniently located (ours wasn’t) they don’t pick you up - no rebate offered.
