Greet your guide and small group outside the Vatican Museums and hand over your entrance fees: the tour cost only covers guiding. Clear security and don your headset.
View the ancient Roman collection, with its masterly sculptures, the Gallery of the Tapestries, which includes work designed by Raphael’s studio, and the Gallery of Geographical Maps. Enter the Sistine Chapel to admire the world-famous frescoes painted by the master Michelangelo—and learn about the frescoes Botticelli and other Renaissance painters crafted before Michelangelo started work.
If St. Peter’s Basilica is open, enjoy time in the Basilica along the way. Your tour ends either there or on Viale Vaticano.
