I'm a certified guide of the Vatican City and I'll be happy to show you the smallest and richest state of the world, without waiting in line for hours (ask me about admission tickets).
This is my selection for a first time in the Vatican:
Ancient Art, Gallery of Tapestries, Gallery of Geographical Maps, Michelangelo Sistine Chapel.

At the end, you'll admire the largest Church of the Catholic world, St. Peter's Basilica.
The Basilica was built originally by Constantine, the first Christian Emperor of the Roman Empire in the IV century AD, over the so-called "Tomb of St. Peter".

If interested in a longer tour choose the "extensive tour"

--> IMPORTANT <---
The Vatican is a sacred religious site, so I kindly ask you to be respectful.
The visit to the Vatican City is made in accordance with the liturgical celebrations of the Holy Father or other events of Holy See. The guide is not responsible for unplanned closures of the Sistine Chapel or St. Peter's Basilica.
