In a small group, you'll admire ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman sculptures, marvel at Renaissance masterpieces by Michaelangelo and Raphael, and stand in awe of the Vatican's crown jewel: the Sistine Chapel. The morning is the busiest period of the day at the Vatican, so we'll avoid the AM masses by visiting in the late afternoon. Either I or one of my enthusiastic cohosts will provide a comprehensive 2-hour tour to the Pope's collection of antiques and masterpieces, giving fun, relevant, and interesting info along the way. We'll also allow free time for exploration and photos. Following the Sistine Chapel, we'll take the back entrance to St. Peter's, only open to visitors with a licensed guide. This back entrance allows us to skip the huge security lines outside St. Peter's Basilica. St. Peter's is the largest church in the world and the center of religion for Catholics, so we'll make sure to give it the time it deserves. During our visit, we'll go to some of the less-visited side chapels, which include sculptures by Michaelangelo, paintings by Raphael, and even the exposed bodies of deceased Popes. We'll conclude the tour in St. Peter's Basilica, where you'll have an option of exploring its crypts lined with the tombs of many Popes, or climbing to the top of the dome for one of Rome's greatest views (dome climb not included on tour).
Originally from the United States, I've been lucky enough to call Rome home for the past 11 years! I first came to Rome to study its incredible history, but the charm and excitement of the city have kept me here for over a decade. I understand the importance of your time in Italy, and with that in mind, I aim to provide reliable and professional experiences to visitors from around the world. Along with my officially licensed, English speaking co-hosts, we will take care of all reservations and tickets so your visit to Rome's greatest sites includes a fun and informative tour while skipping the long lines. Please don't hesitate to contact me for any information or details needed to help plan your trip.

This tour covers St. Peter's Basilica from top to bottom, literally. We begin on ground level of the church, then head to the top of the dome (the highest man-made point in Rome), and conclude in the ancient crypts below the church. The Vatican's history spans nearly 2,000 years, and this tour gives it the time it deserves.
