Guided Group Tours (3 Hours)
Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel


Guided Group Tours Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel

Duration: about 3 hours
Availability: every day except Sunday
Language: English
Starting Time: 9.30 am

Tour main features: Our 3 hour tour covers the most important "must-see" artworks in the museum, while the 4 hour tour includes a visit to Saint Peter's Basilica.
There are about 30 people per tour group. The groups are guided by professional guides who are licensed by the city of Rome.
The visit starts at our check in point, outside the museum. Rome-museum.com is allowed special access to the museum so that visitors do not have to wait in line (there is a short wait at the check in point, and upon entry to the museum visitors must go through the metal detector). Visitors will be provided with a map and headphones that amplify the guide's voice because in some parts of the museum people are not allowed to speak loudly.
After visiting the Sistine Chapel, visitors are free to return to the museum and visit it on their own.
