Vatican Visit • In depth private Vativan tour

Vatican Visit: you have travelled a very long way to get here, so be sure not to miss any treasures in the Vatican City! This brand new tour visits many of the rooms which competing operators omit as a matter of routine.

Duration 5h
20 participants maximum
Service with guide

Vatican Visit: this is a fully private and extended Vatican tour in five hours.

While our other tours strive to cover all the major works of art in the museums, this is the tour for one and all!

Meet your personal guide in our office which is located at Via Sebastiano Veniero 21, just one block away from the Vatican Museums entrance. Upon request, meeting point at hotel may be possible.

We begin the tour with time spent in all the most important galleries inside the magnificent Vatican Museums. You’ll also be proffered access to several lesser known, but equally important rooms, some of which are listed below. Your private Vatican guide will illustrate and explain the following places of interest: Courtyard of the Pinecone, Chiaramonti Museums, Pio-Clementine Museum (Belvedere Courtyard, Room of the Animals, Room of the Muses, Round Room, Greek Cross Room), Gallery of the Candelabra, Gallery of Tapestries, Gallery of Maps, Raphael Rooms (of Constantine, Heliodorus, Signature, and Room of the Fire in the Borgo), Immaculate Conception and Sobieski Rooms in the Apartment of Pius V, Borgia Apartment, Egyptian Museum.

From the Sistine Chapel, as a customer of When In Rome Tours, you’ll have right of way through a special exit which leads directly into St. Peter’s Basilica. Upon arriving in the church, your guide will discuss Michelangelo’s beautiful Pieta’ and dome, Bernini’s bronze Baldacchino and Holy Altar, sculpted Papal funerary monuments, and then proceed to explain the diffuse history of how the building as it appears today came into being. The Vatacombs (Papal Tombs beneath St. Peter’s, not the Vatican Necropolis) are included (only if tour starts in the morning), and you’ll see the Crypt of St Peter from above. In Depth Private Vatican Tour concludes on the portico, where we discuss the Swiss Guard and Vatican City State.

This tour IS available to book between March 30th - April 8th, however, as this is our busiest time of year, some flexibility will be required on your part as regards tour start time. Before you book this tour, please e-mail us first so we can confirm your tour start time and schedule.
