Whether it’s your first time visiting the smallest country in the world or the 7th, there’s always so much more to see, and learn. 

Join us on this amazing private extended tour of the Vatican City. Even though the Vatican is the smallest country in the world it will leave you speechless with its beauty and its cultural wealth. 

We will have the opportunity to see the magnificent works of Michelangelo, Raphael, Caravaggio and many more and admire their creations that are famous all over the world. You will also have the chance to access to the Papal Apartments of the Borgia family and the infamous Pope Julius II.

You will be fascinated by the tremendous Sistine Chapel, which you can admire at your own pace and explore every nook and cranny in the magical St. Peter’s Basilica

Last but not least, we will go down the Basilica to visit the Tombs of the Past Popes and get a closer look into the sacred Tomb and Crypt of St. Peter.

This fascinating 5-hour tour is one of a kind and offers you an immersive experience in the heart of Catholicism. You will learn about the history of the most inspiring men and you will have the chance to admire the gems of this country’s culture!

Important information

Departure Point 

Our 5 Hour Vatican Tour meets: 10am or 11am "at the bottom of the Stairs" of Via Tunisi, opposite the entrance of the Vatican Museum and next to Hotel Alimandi. Look for your guide holding a BLUE FOLDER and ask for MAXIMUS TOURS. 

It's very important that you have a tourist map with you with the street name in case you need to ask for directions. We aim to depart promptly. 

(We DO NOT meet on the steps of the Vatican Museums entrance) 

ATTENTION: As most visitors to Rome are in unfamiliar territory, it is very important that you allow yourselves ample if not extra time to reach the meeting point. Rome can be an unpredictable place regarding transport strikes or the Roman Traffic in general. 

We regret that fees are non-refundable if you arrive late or miss the tour. 

As other groups may be meeting in the same place please look for the Guide with a Blue Folder and ask for Maximus Tours. 

Return Details: The tour ends directly in front of Saint Peter's Basilica (located in Saint Peter's Square).
