Know before you go

  • Please note that when the Basilica of St. Peter is closed for religious functions, you will spend longer time in the Vatican galleries with your private guide. The basilica is a church and as such, the Vatican can decide to use it for religious functions without any notice. The local tour operator is not responsible for unexpected closures of the basilica
  • There is a dress code to enter the basilica and Sistine Chapel: shoulders and knees must be covered. If this dress code is ignored, you might be refused entrance

The tour was all we could ask for and more. Our guide, Diego, was fantastic. He has extensive knowledge of the Vatican and all that it contains. We were a group of 11 and he managed the collective interests very well. He took special care of the 5 children, making the tour interesting and engaging. We would book again, especially Diego, without hesitation.
