Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Sistine Chapel, Citta del Vaticano 1, 00120 Vatican City Italy

Start early, entering the Vatican Museums a full half hour before everyone else. As you head directly to the Sistine Chapel, your guide will brief you on what you are about to see and give you a visual aid to help decipher the frescoes once inside. Step into the chapel and spend a full 30 minutes enjoying the art with very small crowds - there’s no more peaceful way to see these great works of art.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: St. Peter's Basilica, Piazza di San Pietro, 00120 Vatican City Italy

Meet your guide at the bottom of the room and use a special corridor to walk directly into St. Peter’s Basilica without waiting in line. Inside, your guide will again brief you on the highlights of the space - from Bernini’s Baldachin to Michelangelo’s ‘Pieta’ – before leaving you to explore St. Peter’s on your own.


Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Pass By: Walks, Via Caio Mario, 14A, 00192 Roma RM, Italy

It was a wonderful experience. Bruno had a well planned program and schedule to allow us to get the most from the walk. He was an excellent communicator and maintained good control over the group and the content. His knowledge was extensive.

I loved the opportunity to be in the Sistine Chapel without a crowd. Paola is a wonderful guide and provided great explanations of the ceiling before we got it.
