Skip the line Vatican Galleries, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basilica
This is a private tour that you will never forget. A once in a lifetime experience!
A tour that offers not only the possibility to visit the Sistine Chapel with its important frescoes by the great Michelangelo, but also the historical heritage of the Roman Church contained within the walls of the Vatican State.
This private tour includes the most important Galleries of the Museums, the ancient statue collection with unique pieces that have inspired Michelangelo and generations of artist, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. All without standing in line for entrance.
The Vatican is the smallest state in the world with the highest concentration of historical buildings that have preserved their original characteristics and values.

The Basilica of St. Peter's is a functioning church, therefore rarely, the Vatican can decide, without notice, to close some Chapels or the Basilica entirely for services.
The Vatican dress code requests covered shoulders and covered knees for all; adults and children.
Big backpacks and long umbrellas are not allowed in the Vatican Museums.
I am not a driver but I can, upon request, arrange for a private driver with car or minivan. I provide walking tours, however, we can also move from one venue to the other by taxi.

Maneula was an excellent tourguide and host. She showed us so many interesting things with fascinating stories of the history behind what we were seeing. We never would have been able to appreciate all she showed us without her as our guide. In addition she was very attentive to structuring the tour around 2 bathroom breaks, which was really helpful! We would most highly recommend her and we would absolutely book with her again.
