Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

On standard tours of the Vatican Museums, there are sections that can only be reached by stairs or elevator, which prevents some folks with walking disabilities from enjoying their visit. On this specially designed tour, guests in wheelchairs can enjoy an entirely step-free route.

What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Wheelchair Accessible Private Vatican Tour Including Sistine Chapel

Enjoy your tour of the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel

Meet your guide in Vatican City to begin your wheelchair-friendly tour of the Vatican complex, home to one of the world's greatest art collections. You’ll be provided with a headset, which allows you to hear your guide’s commentary throughout your tour.

With your skip-the-line ticket, head past the entrance line and straight inside to start your exploration in the Pinacoteca Gallery, where you’ll see revered works of art like Raphael’s Transfiguration, Caravaggio’s Deposition from the Cross and Da Vinci’s unfinished St Jermone. Learn from your guide about the history of the gallery, which was created for Pope Pius XI, and the stories behind the paintings.

Next, visit the Chiaramonti Museum to gaze in wonder at the approximate 1,000 statues and sculptures of cherubs, gods and emperors that make up this arched gallery, founded in the early 1800s by Pope Pius VII. Hear about some specific pieces from your guide before continuing to the Sistine Chapel, home to Michelangelo’s iconic frescoed ceiling and the place where cardinals gather when it's time to elect new popes. Before you enter, your guide will provide a little insight about the chapel and Michelangelo's famed works inside like The Creation of Adam and The Last Judgement (talking isn’t permitted in the chapel). Your tour ends at the Sistine Chapel.

Please note: A valid disability identification card must be presented on the day of your tour. Those without walking disabilities, or those with a disability level of less than 74%, will be required to pay the entrance fee of approximately 23 euros (adult) or 16 euros (child) in addition to the cost of this guided tour. The entrance fee can be paid for in cash at the beginning of the tour.

We had an excellent tour of the Vatican. Our guide Sarah was so knowledgeable and really made it easy to navigate by wheelchair. I never could have made the tour without the wheelchair access and felt fortunate to have such an informative and efficient guide.
