Marisa Ficorella, Archaeologist and Qualified Guide

In this tour we'll discover highlights of the Vatican City, an amazing little nation governed by the Pope.
I'm a Vatican Museum Educator, so I know this site very well and I'll give you tips and suggestions to skip lines or crowds.
This tour is suggested for a first visit in the Vatican and includes a selection of the best art of the Vatican Museums, a visit in the Sistine Chapel and (if open) the Basilica of St. Peter.
if you've a special interest in Art of the Renaissance choose the "extensive" tour  an indeep journey in the Museums.

If not interested in the visit of the Basilica we can schedule the tour on Wednesday morning, when the Vatican it's less crowded..


the Basilica of St. Peter is a working Church so is often closed without notice for special events or cerimonies. In case of an unplanned closure  we'll visit the Rooms of Raphael or the Art Gallery.
