We can take you on a tour of the Vatican.

But we won't take through the place in a golf cart!   :)

We can arrange your guided tour of the Vatican at the end or before your tour by golf cart or on a different day.

You can meet your guide at the Vatican for your tour or we can arrange your round trip transfer from your hotel.

If you just want to walk around the place on your own we can drop you off at the Vatican at the end of your golf cart tour or we can meet you there at the end of your Vatican tour and take you around Rome in our golf cart.

The Vatican is a really vast place. Though the smallest in the world, it's still a country of its own and it takes about 3 hours to visit its major highlights.

The Vatican tour includes the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica.

Though a lot of people think the Sistine Chapel is the most important thing to see there but it isn't true. The main attraction, the one not to miss, is really St. Peter's Basilica. If the Basilica hadn't been built, none of the rest would be there. St. Peter's Basilica can be visited separately from the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel. In order to get to the Sistine Chapel you have to go through a large part of the Vatican Museums which consist in 1400 rooms packed with statues, paintings tapestries, frescoes etcetera, etcetera.

There is no way you can rush through the Vatican Museums and get to the Sistine Chapel quickly, the place is huge and always packed with people.

St. Peter's Basilica can be visited freely, you don't have to buy any admission fee, but since 9/11 they make you walk through metal detectors and that causes the formation of lines which sometimes can be really long. Depending on day and the time of the day you get there, you may end up standing in line even more than one hour.

If you are a disabled person, or if there is a  disabled person in your group, they will let you avoid the line and walk in through a secondary passage.

The Sistine Chapel cannot be visited separately from the Vatican Museums.

If it is in your intentions to visit the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel you better make a reservation to enter the place without having to stand in line. Click on the following link to purchase your ticket and reserve your entry time:

Vatican half day tour

We really hope you'll be spending at least two days in Rome and not try seeing everything in one day obtaining sore feet, a headache and not retaining much. We  also sincerely hope that, if you'll spend at least two days in Rome, you'll visit the Vatican on the second day. Touring Rome your first day here will prepare you for the massive amount of art works you'll see at the Vatican. Again we would like to remind you that the Vatican is not just a chapel with fresco paintings made by Michelangelo. We want run the risk of boring you by saying that if you just have one day in Rome your interaction with the Vatican should be limited to the visit of St. Peter's Basilica and we can promise it'll impress you much more than the Sistine Chapel! If Michelangelo's works is want you're looking for, it'll surely be useful for you to know that he did not consider himself a painter, but a sculpture and an architect and St'. Peter's Dome is his greatest work in architecture while his first masterpiece, the Pietŗ is housed in St. Peter's Basilica.

Description of the Vatican tour:

A professional guide meet you at the entrance of the Vatican Museum. The guide will tour you through the following itinerary: Pigna Courtyard, Lapidaria Gallery , Belvedere Courtyard, Octagonal Courtyard, Pius-Clementine Museum, Candelabra Gallery, Gallery of Tapestries, Gallery of Maps, Raphael's Rooms and, at the end, the Sistine Chapel. You'll walk directly into St. Peter's Basilica From the Sistine, saving time and a long walk back to the entrance through more museums and the walk around the outside of the Vatican City to get to St. Peter's Square where you would have to line up to go through the metal detectors and enter St. Peter's.

You'll spend about two hours between the Vatican Museums Sistine before you'll get  to St. Peter's. Touring St. Peter's Basilica will require another hour and you'll see the famous Pietŗ by Michelangelo, the funeral monuments to the Popes who are buried in the Basilica, made by the most famous artists, the mosaics, the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament, Bernini's Canopy,  St. Peter's Statue, the Peter's Throne and many other fantastic works of art.

If you would like to know when it would be best to visit the Vatican, my suggestion is the following: best time of the day, just because it's normally less crowded, in the afternoon and the best days of the week would be Tuesday and Thursday.

The price for the Vatican walking tour, for groups up to 4 people, is 180 Euros. For groups up to 7 people itís 220 Euros.
The average additional price for the round trip transfer by private car from your hotel is 100 Euros.

Entrance fees

Free admission at the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel.

People with permanent disabilities and one person who accompanies them, do not have to pay the admission fee to enter the Vatican Museums.

If the disability isn't obvious though, then it must be proved by a certificate.

Wheel chair

If you have have problems walking and standing for a long time, you can use a wheel chair. Wheel chairs are available free of any charge at the Vatican Museums.

You cannot reserve for a wheel chair and consequently if a wheel chair isn't available at the time you enter the Vatican Museums you'll just have to wait for someone to bring one back.

These wheel chairs though, can only be used in the Museums and the Sistine Chapel, you cannot take the wheel chair with you to St. Peter's Basilica, therefore you'll either have to skip St. Peter's Basilica or walk it. Or rent a wheel chair to take to the Vatican with you.

Permanent disabilities

We are sure that those with serious walking problems will come prepared and will have their own wheel chair, but otherwise we'll be happy to help them rent one!
Rent a wheel chair

If your disability is such that you cannot walk through St. Peter's you'll have to rent a wheel chair for this tour. If you don't know where to rent a wheel chair from, we can help you. We can get you a wheel chair to use for the whole tour of the Vatican.

The cost of renting the wheel chair is 30 Euros.

We can get you an electric scooter as well, but it's more  complicated to get around the Vatican in a scooter. The wheel chair works a lot better.

The "Last Judgment" by Michelangelo
 

Michelangelo - Sistine Chapel - The final Judgment      

How you should dress when visiting the Vatican: Saint Peter's Basilica, Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums.

The dress code applies also to  the Vatican Gardens and/or the Scavi (excavations under St. Peter's Church).

WEARING PROPER ATTIRE IS A MUST!

Tour of the Vatican - Disposable pants on sale Tour of the Vatican - Vatican City dress code - Warning outside St. Peter's

Something you need to be aware of is that there are monitors outside both St. Peter's and the Vatican Museums, both places have a very strict dress code: no skirts above the knee, no shorts, no bare shoulders (tank tops or sleeveless blouses are banned) and it's preferable to wear shoes. Better not wear flip-flops, also because they're not that comfortable on marble floors... You will not be allowed inside the basilica if you are not dressed appropriately. Slacks and jeans, however, are permitted and so are shorts, but below the knee also for men in the months of July and August. If you are out sightseeing in shorts, miniskirts, tank tops, sleeveless blouses, etc., and wish to enter a church, you must be dressed appropriately. Monitor are inside the church and the Sistine as well and they have the right to refuse entrance, and accompany you outside, if in their opinion the visitor is dressed inappropriately. You can get around this carrying long pants and a shirt/blouse with sleeves in a bag or backpack so that when you wish to enter a church, you can slip these garments on over your inappropriate attire before you enter.

Strict dress codes are especially adhered to at St. Peter's, so it's not even worth trying to enter wearing short skirts, shorts, or sleeveless tops. You will surely be refused entrance.

Again, no shorts, or sleeveless tops, but itís okay to wear jeans. In case you haven't been foresighted enough to carry additional apparel with you and you happen to be at the Vatican wearing inappropriate clothes you can still buy disposable pants and/or t-shirts and scarves on sale in the souvenir shops just outside St. Peter's. In addition to all of this, keep in mind that during your visit to the Vatican you'll be in a sovereign country regulated by it's own rules, where the laws of Italy or those of your own country do not apply! No smoking anywhere in the Vatican! 

All of the above does not mean you have to dress up like you were going to a party, you just need to be covered and decent.

You might be dressed in rags,  but as long as  your sinful flesh is covered, you'll be admitted in!
