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 and the biggest Church of the Catholic world, St. Peter's Basilica.

If interested in a longer tour choose the "extensive tour #24520"

--> IMPORTANT <---
The "Jubilee of Mercy" will commence on December the 8th 2015, and will conclude on November 20, 2016, and is a special year of pilgrimage in Rome for Catholics.
During this Holy Year, the Basilica of ST. Peter will be often hosting masses or events. Guided tours are not allowed during cerimonies. Please consider this special event, at the moment of the booking.
