a tour of the Vatican City and Museums - admission fees with skip the line included


The Vatican Museums are an enormous complex composed of more than two dozen distinct collections. You do need to plan your time in the museums and the best way to do so is to hire a local licensed guide like me. So you won't miss anything!
In the Vatican Museums you will find the Sistine Chapel, one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world. The Museums hold many priceless works of art including the "Raphael Rooms" and many galleries of sculpture, tapestries and frescos.

The church of S. Peter's Basilica is built on Vatican Hill, across the Tiber river from the historic center of Rome. This was the site where Saint Peter, the chief apostle, died a martyr and where he was buried in 64 AD. St. Peter is considered the first pope, so this church is considered the most important for all Christianity and it is full of historical treasures, where artists like Michelangelo and Bernini worked.

16 june 2018 we had the pleasure of a private Vatican tour with our Vatican certified guide, Claudia M. First experience with ToursByLocals. We were delighted by this company generally and with Claudia in particular, from the initial booking to follow-up emails with Claudia. She always responded promptly met us on time at the exact meeting place . She was recognized quickly by Vatican guards moving us easily on a crowded Sat. Very knowledgeable excellent English perfect tour! Highly recommend Claudia!
